GeekGirl+ meetup at Stockholm Makerspace 21st of October 2014

October 22, 2014

GGM1Exited after a great meetup with lots of inspired GeekGirl+ women who listened to personal talks by multitalented artists Farvash Razavi and Julia Krantz. Erik Cederberg from Stockholm Makerspace gave a intro to 3D.

The white dress shows a project made by Julia Krantz, its called Whiteness, the project mixes fashion, photography and graphic design to create a series of images centred on a figure protected by loops of armour.

The artpiece to the right is made by Farvash Razavi as a master work for Konstfack in 2010.

Both Julia and Farvash made us all amazed by their unique approach to life choices and the combination of art, technology and
creativity. You rock girls !

Hope to see you all at the next GeekGirl+ meetup !

Robotbyggarworkshop för mamma + barn på Stockhlm Makerspace

August 29, 2014

Robotbyggarworkshop

GeekGirlMeetup+ arrangerar tillsammans med Harriet Aurell och Stockholm Makerspace en unik workshop för mamma + barn.

Under tre timmar bygger vi en robot med guidning av Harriet Aurell som är en erfaren teknikpedagog. Vi gör robotarna rörliga med hjälp av små motorer, enkla strömbrytare, hemmagjorda batterihållare, borstar och tekniska knep.

Sen bygger vi resten av roboten med återvinningsmaterial och låter fantasin få fritt spelrum.

Målet med robotbygget är att barn och förälder genom kreativitet och skapande skall få en inblick i hur man åstadkommer mekaniskt ”liv” och förhoppningsvis vill fortsätta lära sig mer.

Lokal: Stockholm Makerspace, Wallingatan 12, Stockholm

Datum: 14 september 2014  kl 13-16

Sista anmälningsdatum:  8 september 2014

Pris: 250 kr per person/robot  (bara den som bygger en robot behöver betala) .

Betalning och anmälan görs endast via vår anmälningslänk. Bindande anmälan.

Antalet platser är begränsat till 20 st personer (inkl föräldrar), först till kvarn gäller.

Vid frågor kontakta Susanne Fuglsang, GeekGirlMeetup+ på 070-738 99 97 eller maila på susanne@geekgirlmeetupplus.com

GeekGirlMeetup+ rolemodel interview with Annika Lidne

June 11, 2014

AnnikaLidne2

Meet Annika Lidne, 49 years.

Startup founder, public speaker, online strategist and much more.

GGM+ sat down with Annika to talk about how her career and how it all started.
It turned out to be more of a coincidence rather than a planned career move.
The magazine The Futurist played a vital role in her early interest of tech trends and led her to visit the Stockholm Public Library a lot of times to get a glimpse of the future.

From there on it has been a ongoing process from the nineties where she started the first crossmedia agency in Sweden and learned how to code in 1998. Over the years her career has included a broad media experience, working with everything from journalism, publishing and advertising to television, product placement in feature films and a longtime focus on the Internet.

Today she is a sought after speaker, CEO and co-founder of her own startup Dramatify, Senior Advisor at Disruptive Media, Advisory Board member of SUP46 and Berghs School of Communication – for Interactive Communication and last but not least founder of the ground breaking Disruptive Media Conference.

We asked Annika to share some advice to all GGM+ fans.
– I start everyday between 06.00-06.30 reading all my Feedly RSS sources to keep up with the latest news and trends. I recommend everyone to do the same, to find a time during the day to learn new stuff.
– Don ́t ask for help when it is time to do tech stuff, fix it yourself and learn by doing !

The same day we did the interview, Annika was invited to a roundtable discussion with Stefan Löfven, the Leader of the Social Democratic Party together with seventeen other carefully selected digital ambassadeurs to talk about a digital policy for Sweden. Let ́s hope they use all these great brains to create positive changes.

We will continue to keep an eye on Annika and her journey in the digital and tech world.
