Are you on the Residents Directory yet?

Residents Directory iconComing soon … a touch screen in the ground floor lobby displaying the residents directory…

*** Have you filled in your profile? ***

You can check by clicking on the residents directory, finding your floor and seeing if you are listed.

Clooti have been hard at work with the touch screen that will very soon be installed in the ground floor lobby. It will help guide visitors to your studio. If you haven’t got your profile on the residents directory, you should do it now. If you are having any problems, come to the 3rd floor office and our wonderful intern, Marie, will be able to help you through the process.

Photos of the Makers’ Fair

Thank you so much to all those who participated this weekend in the Makers’ Fair. There was such a great atmosphere. The event was really appreciated by those who came to visit.

So… to all those setting up, invigilating and helping with take-down – you’ve been stars! We hope you’ve enjoyed getting involved in this annual big collective event. We send you our sincerest thanks for all your help and making this event such a joy to work on!

We estimate that around 600-800 people attended the fair this weekend, some of whom had never been to the building. The community café went really well so we hope to continue to be able to put this on during our events.

There are a few photos below but you can see more photos on our Facebook page.
