FAQ


Who is this for?

This is for anyone interested in happenings in design, creative industries and technology in and around East London and  Tech City, we primarily invite women to demonstrate but if you are otherwise identified and have something you think we should see please do get in touch.

How can I participate?

E-mail alex at designswarm.com to let us know you are interested.

What should I demonstrate?

Your research, your product, your business idea, your design work, your film, your food, your secret members club, whatever – inspire us!

Do I have to be a woman?

We’ve decided to keep the event focused on women so our demo spaces will primarily focus on women or female led organisations but if you are otherwise identified and have something you think we should see please do get in touch. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend the event!

Why women, I don’t usually do these events?

Women, because we are celebrating International Women’s Day 2014 but we also believe it is important to provide a platform for women who are not necessarily heard and not visible to younger generations of women coming through the education system. This is a platform to inspire those following in our footsteps.

Why demos?

We like show and tells as a no pressure, interactive showcase to allow people to meet and interact face to face without the pressure of an onstage approach.

Who organises this?
