Speaker Series « Maker Faire Vancouver Supporting tagline
1:00 PM – Vincent Van Haaff
Vincent will be discussing what music, video/installation art, hackspaces, and the maker movement all have in common. He will explore the parallels between connecting ‘software libraries & hardware’ and connecting ‘people and communities’ and how these points can benefit and accelerate every piece involved. He will also offer examples of how tribes can help you progress your field of multi-media work in both utilizing other fields and by offering to help for others that want to grow as well.
