Culture Night 2014 @ 091 Labs: Sugru, Art, Board Gaming & More!



091 Labs will be taking part in Galway Culture Night  this Friday, September 19th from 5pm until late (or more realistically, 8pm or 9pm)!


Culture Night  is a country-wide event where businesses and organisations open their doors to the public for a night of free events and entertainment. This will be our third year participating and if the last two Culture Nights are anything to go by it’s going to be a heck of a lot of fun!


This year, we’ll be holding a Sugru Build Night in association with tutorials mega-website Instructables. Sugru is a mold-able material that sets to a non-toxic, water-proof, cold and heat resistant silicone rubber overnight, allowing you to make custom grips, shock-absorbing bumpers for fragile items, seal leaky shoes, mend frayed charging cables, make any toy Lego-compatible (and at lest ten times more awesome) and improve almost anything. If you have something that you think you can improve, repair or just mess with, bring it by on thenight and we’ll provide the Sugru! Many, many thanks are owed to Sugru and Instructables for donating the Sugru to us. If you need inspiration, check out Sugru’s own suggestions or the Instructables Sugru tutorials.


As well as Sugru, we will be hosting an exhibition of artwork from Galway Pub Scrawl, Galway’s local social art group. They will also be running a mini-meetup in the Labs for anyone interested in doing some chatting and sketching. Or if you’re more gaming-minded we will have Board Games Club Galway playing some board games, suitable for all skill levels. Expect back-stabbing and cunning strategies!


And on top of all this we will have our members showing off their projects, arcade games, electronics, 3d printing and more.
The city will be absolutely jam-packed with events so get out there and experience what Galway has to offer!


Galway Culture Night @ 091Labs

Galway Culture Night091 Labs is taking part in Galway Culture Night this Friday, September 23rd from 6pm until late (but officially 8pm).

Everyone is invited to come down and have a look at the space!

We’re going to be showing off some bits and pieces made by our members and they’ll be sporting some of their homebrew and food too. We’ll be showing you the basics of soldering with some of Part Fusion‘s I Can Solder badges and we’re going to be building or ‘testing’ our MAME arcade game cabinet on the night as well.

As a bit of fun, we’re also going to be making LED Throwies and, once it gets dark and we’ve made a good pile of them, we’ll be heading outside and covering Eyre Square’s Galway Hooker Monument in them!

Galway Hooker Monument

The National Communications & Computer Museum will be opening for Culture Night tomorrow and, in particular, they’ll be dedicating the night to the many years of arcade gaming! They, too, will be open from 6pm to 8pm and we recommend you try to get to it.

There will be buses traveling between all the different venues so have a look on the Culture Night site to get more details about transport and everything else happening event-wise.
