Starting an OTS in Matera, Italy


(Kei Kreutler) #1

Hi All,

I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Kei Kreutler, and I’m currently a resident at unMonastery, the first prototype of a project aimed at place-based social innovation. I have a background in computer science and visual art. As part of my residency, I’m establishing a new chapter of OpenTechSchool in Matera, Italy.

We’ve already held a few events - from workshops on web design to an introductory session on Arduino as part of #ArudinoD14!

We’ve just posted a community call for collaborators, both on the ground and on the web to keep the school going! Any advice you have creating a chapter is much appreciated, as well as any help you could offer with workshop materials or English-Italian translation.

Thanks, and I look forward to becoming part of the community!
