When: 2-3 November 2013

Location: Arts House Meat Market

Team: Ammon Beyerle, Michelle Emma James + Micha Woodhouse

After the success of Mini-Maker Faire Melbourne Ammon continued working with James McDonald and Paul Szymkoviac to produce a new event in November 2013, called eurisko.

The event is a celebration of DIY and sharing, - a new premiere "maker" event of electronics, 3D printers, rockets, a cardboard maze, electric bicycles, alternative energy, clothing repairs, costumes, and hand-made crafts. It is organised into a market, lectures and workshops. We welcomed individuals and groups of 'makers' that wanted to show and share their ideas, skills and products- of all different sizes and shapes.

The etymology of eurisko is "ev-ris-ko" in Ancient Greek - better known today as heuristic - or "learning by doing".

Eurisko was developed to enable a broad range of DIY (Do-It-Yourself), DIT (Do-It-Together), DIWO (Do-It-With-Others) enthusiasts to:

- explore various aspects of learning by doing.
- collaborate with others on things they are passionate about.
- share knowledge and skills.
- learn from each other.
- provide a platform to support experiential learning and sharing tacit knowledge"

here studio was a partner of eurisko 2013, offering a place for most of the directors' planning meetings, assisted in design and promotion, and shared in setup, packdown and managing the event on the day. Ammon's main role was as creative director designing the layout, organising the programme and assisting curation of contributors.
