Dorkbot is a meeting of people interested in electric/electronic art in the broadest sense; robotics, kinetic art, microcontrollers, interactive art, algorithmic music, net.art… The only real conditions are that it is a bit strange and involves electricity in some way. It is really defined by whoever turns up, be it engineers who want to be artists, or artists who want to be engineers, or the otherwise confused.

Dorkbot started in New York, spread to London, and nowdozens of cities around the world including several active UK chapters; BristolAngliaNewcastleCardiff and Alba(Scotland).

There’s a lot of great dorky activities already happening in Sheffield, for this reason dorkbotsheffield is just an occasional event.

Get involved! If you’re doing something strange with electricity, please get in contact with us at dorkbotsheffield@lurk.org. You can also join our discussion mailing list.

If you just want to receive future announcements you can join the announcement only mailing list. For those who are that way inclined, there’s also a facebook page.
