Prishtina Hackerspace is a community-based co-working and open experimentation space established for technological, educational, cultural and scientific purposes. This space has served as a working environment for students for many years now. The aim of the space is to:
– Provide workspace, equipment and other resources for communal use by all members;
– Encourage continued and after-school learning through workshops, classes, seminars and mentoring;
– Create a safe and open environment for experimentation in technology and art.
The Hackerspace is an open participation environment where people of all ages and from various disciplines learn hands-on in a collaborative, fun manner by making prototypes and tinkering with devices, participate in international competitions or do ambitious projects from flying machines to biology hacking.
In parallel with individual projects, the space is open for member-independently organized workshops, lectures and presentations, as well as just general gatherings that have to do with knowledge sharing, group tech projects for those that want to incubate in the hackerspace or those that just want to hang around at the hackerspace seeking help at some specific project that they might be working on.
Prishtina Hackerspace was crowdfunded in 2015 whereas now it is funded by FLOSSK, membership fees and donors.
