The Ballarat Hackerspace is modeled on an international community of like minded spaces that started in Germany back in 1995. It supports and encourages Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics culture in the Ballarat region by providing a physical space for residents to meet, interact, create and innovate.
To satiate public curiosity and accessibility we are open for walk-ins at the following times:
|Monday||6pm – 9pm|
|Tuesday||4pm – 9pm|
|Saturday||9am – 3pm|
Note: Non-probationary Workshop members have 24/7 access to the space.
We moved into our new space at Room 903, B Building, of the Federation University SMB Campus in January 2015. Please come along and check us out at our next meetup, or any time we are open. Check the calendar or the online community for opening times. If you would like to support our community please join the Ballarat Hackerspace.
The space is a workshop, so we require enclosed shoes to be worn while visiting. There are rules that apply in the space for everyone’s safety & enjoyment.
Our street address is:
107 Lydiard Street South,
The Ballarat Hackerspace is a volunteer based, non-profit incorporated association (in Victoria) and follows the Rules of Association that it was founded with.
As part of this, we elect a Committee as chartered in the rules. The current committee were elected on Saturday, 9th of July, 2015.
