MadLab is a grassroots innovation organisation, based in Manchester UK. Our primary areas of focus are science and technology; arts and culture. We support a diverse range of communities and activities – from monthly meetups and courses through to public experimentation with new and emerging technologies, and collaborating with others to deliver new, interesting and exciting projects – everything from code schools in libraries to community biotechnology and a regional space programme. Established in 2009, MadLab was one of the first of the current crop of makerspaces in the UK and – with more than 15,000 participants every year – is one of the most active creative communities in the UK. Key activities: - Professional development - Volunteer and outreach (e.g. Digital Skills for Women, Curry & Coding) - An Arts and Technology “creative practice accelerator” (part of a £1m ACE & Innovate UK national pilot, alongside Near Now and Makerversity) - A co-working - An award-winning year-round art-science-technology project programme (UK-China Maker-Manufacturing, Manchester Space Programme, LabEasy Community Biotech Lab, …) - Delivery and collaboration with other organisations (RSA, BBC, Science Museum Group, British Council, various universities and local/city councils, …) MadLab's base of operations is a 3000 square foot former Industrial Revolution-era weaver's cottage in the city's creative Northern Quarter district. This space comprises workshop and meeting space, a small but perfectly-formed shared office, and a "nano-hackerspace" digital makers workshop.
