Nottingham Hackspace Needs Your Help

As you may or may not be aware, Nottingham Hackspace’s landlords have been evicted from our current location, meaning we lose our space at the end of April.

This gives us an opportunity to make Nottingham Hackspace even better, but for that we need your help!

The Big Workshop

We have found an excellent space for Hackspace2.0, much bigger than our current hackspace, but we need a fairly large initial deposit – £2000.  This is where you come in…

Your can help us by:

  • Sending a donation – the simplest way
  • Becoming a friend of Nottingham Hackspace – have your name immortalised for all time
  • Sponsor part of our new space – name a room in Hackspace2.0

We need to raise this money by the end of April so if you can, please stick your hand down the back of your sofa and donate now!

Donation

Bank and PayPal details are at the bottom of this post, simply send us some money and mark it as a donation!

Become a Friend of Nottingham Hackspace

If you become a friend of Nottingham Hackspace, we will list your name on this site, and on a massive display in Hackspace2.0.  This “Friend’s Wall” will form the backdrop of many of our future videos and photos.

Becoming a friend is easy and cheap, with a number of options – basically, the more money you donate, the bigger and more prominent your name on the wall and the website.  You can donate as much as you like, and we will ensure that everyone’s “per £” is the same.

I’ve made an rough, unedited video of the space we are trying to get!

This space is as big as our ambition. The video starts in the Big Workshop, the camera then goes through the door (past @Nachimir) into the Big Studio… I then pop my head into the doors of the ablution room, kitchen, Small Studio and the reception storage and office. Back through the Big Studio and then to the little middle office.

Guys, please post the BIC/IBAN of your bank account, so I can do a SEPA transfer … not everyone does things the way they are being done on the island ;P

Also, please offer flattr (or at least moneybookers) in addition to paypal, lotsa fellow nerds despise PP…

Good luck collecting the necessary funds, I’m rooting for you. Hopefully we can come visit you soon in your new space – don’t forget to throw an internationally announced house warming party 😉

[…] The 2011 Faire had been the first time many of the newer UK Hackspaces had met up. The spaces enjoyed a great social night in the pubs of Newcastle and good times were had and good relationships were formed. It was just a few days after that when Nottinghack’s landlords in Hackspace 1.1 lost their tenancy and Nottingham Hackspace had to find a new home. […]
