We’re pleased to be hosting Dorkbot Manchester #4 – a meetup for artists, technologists, and everyone in between – at the School of Digital Arts (SODA) at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Dorkbot is an international group of meetups for artists, engineers, designers, scientists, inventors, and others working under the broad umbrella of electronic art. Dorkbot meetings aim to nurture a local electronic arts community and to encourage people to talk about the work they’re doing, and to foster discussion about that work in a friendly, supportive, informal atmosphere.
