At this week’s Community Meeting<https://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Community+workshops> ( Mar 21, 2018 ) Stewart Russel will be joining to talk about Makers Making Change<http://www.makersmakingchange.com/>.
Makers Making Change<http://www.makersmakingchange.com/> is run by the Research and Development department of the Neil Squire Society<http://www.neilsquire.ca/>; a Canadian National not-for-profit organization that uses technology, knowledge and passion to empower people with disabilities. Makers Making Change addresses issues faced by people with disabilities by utilizing the open source movement, the crowd sourcing movement, and the maker movement to create affordable, assistive technologies at the community level.
We build networks and community by hosting events to prototype and build new devices; providing a library of free, tested, open source assistive technologies; and hosting a community based “matching service” through our website where makers and people with disabilities can connect to work on projects collaboratively in their region.
