This is a lecture about my organisation MISS BALTAZAR’S LABORATORY, describing women’s access to Open Source tools and hardware. It was recorded 21st of May 2011:
In 2010, Stefanie travelled to Damascus to run a women-only workshop focusing on Open-source technology, where participants learnt to build circuits, play with DIY electronics and interactive art. At present she organizes a weekly event in Vienna called Mz Baltazar’s Laboratory dedicated to making things. All workshops are free in order to offer a fearless, accessible platform to tinker with male connotated toys. She views the process of demythifying technology as a fun way to articulate ourselves and become creative.
