A couple of folk have reported difficulties finding makerspace activities and the like. As school holidays are approaching, it’s a good time to plan ahead and also look for childrens, teens and pop culture events.
Here’s a few suggestions:
The Edge at SLQ: http://edgeqld.org.au/. There’s a variety of events, workshops, inductions you could try.
Most of the big Queensland public libraries have events such as:
- Brisbane http://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/whats-on/venue/library-events?trumbaEmbed=search%3Dmaker
- Gold Coast (check out their 3DLab events): http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/library/events-activities-66.html
- Ipswich: http://www.library.ipswich.qld.gov.au/events/adults/makerspace/
- Redlands: http://www.redland.qld.gov.au/RecreationFacilities/RedlandLibraries/Pages/LibraryEvents.aspx
If you want to attend an event that you aren’t the right age for (e.g. something targeted at under 18s), just contact the library service, explain your assessment and ask for permission to attend.
And here’s some shameless self promotion from my workplace.
Coming up on the weekend of October 3 and 4 will be Queensland’s first Fun Palaces. SLQ is leading this and will have their Fun Palace on Saturday October 3 but there are also Fun Palaces at Lowood, Longreach, Weipa, Mossman, Helensvale, Thursday Island and Beaudesert (check with each library service for dates and times).
