Attendees

Every year, we go as a big group and set up the Nottingham Hackspace village. We offer something to EMF attendees (EMF2016 we brought BarBot, Snackspace and Fire Pong) in a canvas tent if possible. There is obviously a cost to this.

If you are interested in joining the village for 2022, please fill in the table below. There is the opportunity for shared transport and to help pay the cost for the village (costs tbc).

We are also trying for 2022 a "pay it forward" ticket pledge drive - so there may be an opportunity to come on a free ticket that members of the Hackspace pledge towards - the trustees will organise the raffle if we get a ticket secured. See the

Food is available on the site not necessitating a shared meal/BBQ stuff for this year. Snackspace will be run however for snacks and maybe morning coffee too!

We are also doing a EMF 2022 Village Pledge to help fund the marquee, tables, chairs and core things for EMF.

Also we'll be doing Nottinghack village workshops. Note below if you're doing it for the village or generally. The rota for the village will be arranged with those doing the workshops based on their availability so add that if you can.

Talk/Workshop/Event Name Person Workshop Tent Duration and Times It Can Notes
Pop Up Cafe Mike Haber/ Betty Ching / Hackspace Yes Mornings 9 - 10AM Friday, Saturday, Sunday (may be we can start a bit earlier?) It was hard to get a coffee 'early' at the last EMF. We can do a pop up cafe. This uses the workshop tent for seating for an hour, then after Snackspace will be generally available with a few seats and potentially more serve-yourself
Barbot Andrew Armstrong and Ben and others Yes 3 hours, 9PM to midnight; Friday, Saturday evenings Barbot is a robotic bartender that makes cocktails. Donations will be taken for the project, but the drinks are free!
Badge Making / Soldering Workshops Andrew Armstrong and hopefully someone else Yes 1 hour, 10AM on Friday and Sunday Badge making using badge kits and soldering irons, simple little kits for adults and children to learn basic soldering. There is a small cost to buy the kits themselves.

Urban Confessionsal Mike Haber Gazebo 1hr - not full workshop, going to go in Gazebo - timing flexible (afternoon/evening) We can run a listening event like https://urbanconfessional.org
Daytime Snackspace, Tea and Coffee General Gazebo

Other potential ideas but shelved for now:

Talk/Workshop/Event Name Person Location Duration and Times It Can Notes
Board Games Andrew Armstrong (and helpers?) Not set 3-4 hours Probably late afternoon board game period. May involve D&D for beginners too. May just run this for friends when time is spare.

Village

List of things people are bringing to display/have used in the tent. We are having a small gazebo next to a workshop tent (1) we are helping run things in. We may do a fire pit in the camp area.

Our area on the map: https://map.emfcamp.org/

Our village page over there: https://wiki.emfcamp.org/wiki/Village:Nottinghack

Emf 2022 workshop tent 1.PNG

(new info) we're probably a 3x3 gazebo with a fire pit area nearby, and next to Workshop Tent 1

Item Person Description
Snackspace Andrew A and Mike H Snackspace needs organising but will possibly be a "pay into a box or use your card here" deal will need further discussion so someone isn't stuck looking after it.
Morning Coffee Mike Haber Have proper pressed coffee in the mornings for people as part of Snackspace
Lighting Graham and Ben's kit Evening lighting (barbot time) using Ben's kit - DMX interfacing using a custom board
Candy Crane Machine dispensing curios Kate Bolin
Flipchart/Whiteboard on stand Mike Haber Good for writing messages and signs for the village

Barbot - will be stored in Gazebo and maybe the Workshop tent depending on size

Nottinghack Village Volunteers

We'll probably do a rough rota for the Nottinghack Village and snackspace so it is hopefully manned most of the daytime to show off projects and assist with Snackspace.

We'd not leave anyone running a workshop alone if at all possible, and if they are we'd otherwise close the tent.

Person Availability (Day, time) Notes
Andrew Armstrong Every day, all times Will be covering Barbot on some evenings and helping the workshop tent.
Michael Erskine Michael Erskine (talk) unsure I will help with Barbot and various other things.

What to Bring

Here are some ideas of things you might want to bring with you.

Item Reason
Decent quality long extension lead If you want power to your tent from the centralised power. 20M reel would be recommended to be sure.
4-way extension lead or similar Plugs will be limited, bring to ensure you have enough for your devices
Money Money can buy food and/or beverages
Teacup Having your own teacup you can re-use will help us out
Medication Bring your own pain killers/hangover cures, we do not supply this! First aiders will be on site.
Camping Chairs Chairs have been ordered for village use, bring your own to guarantee a place to sit and for your own tent.
Long Ethernet cable If you want ethernet in your tent
USB cables The EMF badge charges via USB-C you'll probably want some for your own devices
Torch It gets dark at night
Rubber Mallet To help put up your own tent and others
Drinks There is a bar but you might want to bring spirits or other drinks for yourself.
Snacks To keep your going between meals
Toiletries Stuff to wash with, towels, toothbrush etc.
Raincoat and Wellies It will probably rain at some point and it's in a field
Sun Cream There might be sun at some point and you'll be outdoors
Bug Spray It's near water and some people have tasty blood
Jumpers, Jacket and Hoodies It will be cold at night and you'll be outdoors
Painkillers E.g. Paracetamol/Ibuprofen. Some people get ill, some get hangovers. These are cheap, small and occasionally necessary.

Meetings

Nottinghack Projects

If you're planning to do a project to take to EMF 2022 and might want to collaborate with others or group together for transport etc, please consider adding a page to this section.

  • BarBot - Mouse and volunteers ran BarBot. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun too. They needed at least three people during the event and one coordinator/planner pre- and during the event.

Previous EMF Projects

  • Wunderkammer in 2018 setup by Kate in our small village
  • Fire Pong - Nottinghack collaboration resulting in an attraction involving fire, giant ping pong bats and 1-D pong. Enormously popular.
