Making Beirut v1.0
Categories: at-karaj, in-beirut


Karaj and Beirut Design week invite you to Making Beirut v1.0, a show opening on Wednesday June 27th featuring flying copters, weird robots, surfaces turned interactive, social RFID and many more oddities. The show consists of an open studio and is the first showcase of some of Lebanon’s up and coming hardware hackers, and a sneak peak into the upcoming Beirut hackerspace ahead. Join us for a unique experience that will show you a side of Beirut design you’ve never seen, a community hacking its way into the city as they want to see it.

Whether you are a technology geek or just a curious soul, into hardware or software, you can come meet and discuss with makers from Lebanon.

Opening: Wednesday June 27th at 6pm.
Show opens every day from Thursday 28th till Saturday 30th of June from 12pm till 6 pm.
