< FLOAT />

Huddersfield queer, minority gender & women creative technology meetups.

NEXT MEETUP: Tuesday the 5th of March, 17.30 - 19.30, Vortex Studios

March's meetup will be an open meeting for anyone to discuss their current projects/thoughts/ideas.

We will also talk a little bit about plans for FLOAT in 2024, hopefully getting together a lost of anyone interested in being involved in expanding the scope of FLOAT to include some collaborative exhibitions/performances.

What?

FLOAT is a casual monthly meetup in Huddersfield for anyone who identifies as queer, belonging to a minority gender, or a woman, interested in creative technology. This could be creative coding, web design, digital art, game development, electronic/digital music or something else we haven't thought of!

Meetups last roughly two hours, with free hot & cold drinks available. We aim to include some kind of activity in each session, whether it's a quick presentation, skill share, or discussion on a pre-decided topic.

Where?

Vortex Studios, Revenue Chambers, St Peter's Street, Huddersfield, HD1 1DL

Please arrive between 17.15 and 17.30 and buzz to be let in.

The studio is on the first floor, which is accessible by lift. Unfortunatley, there is no step free access to the building itself.

If you have any problems finding the building, contact Charlotte - hello@charlotteroe.space

When?

The 5th of every month. 17.30 - 19.30.

Why?

To create a friendly, inclusive space 'of our own', for those traditionally exluded from more tech-y creative scenes and industries. Hopefully, FLOAT can be the seed of new collaborations, projects, skill exchanges and friendships.

Who?

FLOAT is for anyone who identifies as queer, as belonging to a marginalised or minority gender, or as a woman. This can include people who prefer not to self-define or use any particular label. If you feel like this applies to you but you're not sure, then it probably applies to you!

How?

Just turn up!
