The MechartLab of the SGMK will be relocating in April 2020 to a very large space near the Escher Wyss Platz, very close to Bahnhof Hardbrücke and Main Station. We will be joining forces with CCCzh, the Digitale Gesellschaft Schweiz, the Linux User Group Schweiz and others. We are currently planning the workings of this space. Feel free to join the discussion on this mailinglist:

See our Documents Bitwäscherei here.

And the wiki for sharing amongst groups (temporary)

hier noch grad ein bischen SGMK Memoiren...

Wir haben uns ja OHNE space gegründet, Mobilität, Chiste Packe und flexibel temporär an diversen Orten ein Lab aufzubauen war und IST schon immer unsere Stärke. Grad im Vergleich zu vielen Spaces die sich da verhockt haben. Beispiele sind all unsere Workshops (die jetzt auch in ähnlicher Manier Actioncy weitergelebt habt), Festivals, Poolloop, FTW oder auch Kiblix in Maribor, wie auch unser jährliches HomeMade. Chiste Packe und Mobilität bewahren ist unser Motto!
