A hackerspace is a community-operated workspace where people with common interests, often in computers, machining, technology, science, digital art or electronic art, can meet, socialize and collaborate. One such space called Prishtina Hackerspace is opening up tomorrow in Prishtina, while another one is on the horizon to be launched in the city of Gjakova, and called Bonevet.
Prishtina Hackerspace is a youth space established exclusively for educational, cultural and scientific purposes .The aim of the space is to provide workspace, equipment and other resources for communal use by all members; Encourage continued and after-school learning through workshops, classes, seminars and mentoring and Create a safe and open environment for experimentation in technology and art. Kosovo youth lacks programmed activities open to all, especially those that expose niche skills and activities. This need becomes more acute during the long summer vacation when not much happens to keep these youth engaged in educational activities.
The event launch will be held tomorrow starting at 19:00 at the premises of Dit’e Nat, and will also mark the launch of the fund-raising campaign of the hackerspace to reach a total sum of over 57,000 euros, which should serve to have it up and running in the first year.
