Web3 Hackerspace: Inclusion, Inspiration & Collaboration

Quicklinks: Apply to host a Node in the hackerspace. Email questions to hackerspace@web3summit.com.

What is a Hackerspace?

Some of the best projects are founded at home, in a basement or, notoriously, in a garage. But most of us don’t have the space or tools to put our ideas into motion. Just because we don’t have all the ingredients doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try, right?

Hackerspaces are an opportunity to be creative and come up with your own programming for Web3 Summit. These are ‘safe zones’ to collaborate, giving builders a place to think, create and tinker: be it technology, science, math, music, arts, crafts — anything!

Hackerspace Structure

Web3 Foundation is renting an entire hall to host community-led hackerspaces. The space will be divided into individual Camps (Nodes). Essentially each ‘Node’ will focus on building a particular project over the course of the Summit.

Tips for Nodes

  • Use your creativity to create a unique experience, and have fun!
  • Give Summit attendees the opportunity to contribute and collaborate.
  • Be inspiring and inclusive to attract participation from 1,000+ Summit attendees.

Aspiring Nodes are kindly asked to fill in the application form providing as much information as possible about your project and why you should be considered for a dedicated Node at Web3 Summit. Applications will be reviewed periodically and assessed in accordance with the criteria above. All applications must be submitted before 15 September 2018.

Tools and Equipment

Basic infrastructure for each Node will be provided, such as comfy chairs and tables. It is possible that we can accommodate further requests for furniture or props — these will be assessed on a case by case basis and requests should be included in your application.

Time

Node operators are permitted to bring in their own props, tools, kit and hardware and set it up in the hackerspace for the duration of the conference.

  • Access to the Hackerspace: 8.00am Monday 22 October
  • Hackerspaces close: 8.00pm Wednesday 24 October

Early access is available on request.

Please email email hackerspace@web3summit.com with any questions.

We look forward to hearing your ideas and we will see you in Berlin!
