This year OSHWA is doing our best to support our community members who can’t physically make it out to the Summit in New York.
Here are spaces that will be hosting watch parties during the 2023 Summit:
Want to host a watch party but don’t know where to start? Here’s a handy guide to organizing this event in your space!
How to set up a watch party
- Make sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can list your space!
- Let your space members know you’re going to stream the event.
- Discuss and decide on streaming options and where to host
- Plan logistics –
- Event registration if needed (such as Eventbrite or Facebook event, etc.)
- Food/drink if needed, people love to snack while they watch things
- Parking information or directions for attendees
- Figure out a good room configuration for maximum watchability
- Send out the invitations to your members
- Promote your event on social media!
The 2023 Open Hardware Summit is totally free to livestream but we would be super stoked if your space could provide a donation to help us make this happen! We will be sure to help promote your space’s watch party in exchange!
We have also designed a super fun and super cool poster to help you promote your local watch party!
We can send along the file to be edited with your spaces information upon request.
