Events 2019


Join us for our fortnightly Radical Tuesdays at Newspeak House!

Tuesday, August 6 and August 20 at 6pm - Newspeak House


Join us for our Radical Engineers meetup at Newspeak House!

Every other Tuesday we will be meeting up to collaborate on projects, to discuss progress and to learn together. This is a meetup for engineers of all stripes (hackers, makers, designers and other technologists) who wish to contribute their spare time and talents to radical projects, or work on their own projects. The evening will kickoff with a short introduction round, after which you can proceed to work on your own project, join someone else’s or join one of ours.

What is a radical project? Here at Radical Engineers, we have been seeking and contacting organisations which aim to fundamentally change our economic, political and social systems to enhance human autonomy and social equality. We discuss their projects and clarify any technical challenges or needs they may have so that when they are presented to you, our community, you know that they are properly considered and genuinely useful. Our vetting process means that you will only be working on projects which will help not just to fix the symptoms of our economic systems, but aim to contribute to systemic change itself.

Not an engineer? That’s ok too! You would be surprised at the variety of skills needed for projects. Spreadsheet sprites, word wizards and pixel pirates are valued guests and we could always use a hand scoping out new projects!

Location: Newspeak House, 133 Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 7DG
Date and time: 18:00-21:00 6 August (and every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month thereafter).

Radical Engineers health meetup:
Heal The World

Thursday, Feb 21 2019, 7pm - Newspeak House


Join us for our Radical Engineers meetup at Newspeak House!

This month’s theme is health. Whether you lead a healthy life still largely depends on where you are born, your socio-economic class, race, gender and sexual orientation. Given this reality, how do we ensure we all have access to health services? How do we ensure issues that affect the health of marginalised populations (e.g. drug addictions, or tropical diseases) get researched and treated? And, how do we promote healthy habits when our digital lives, increased social isolation and sedentary lifestyles are putting our (mental) well-being at risk? Many radical initiatives are working to tackle these problems. They need our help!

We are inviting organisations working in this area to meet engineers of all stripes (hackers, makers, designers and other technologists) who wish to contribute their spare time and talents to these projects. During the meetup we will run a speed dating session, for organisations to introduce themselves to our engineers.

Location: Newspeak House, 133 Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 7DG
Date: Thursday, 21 February 2019

Doors open at 19:00, event starts at 19:30

Radical Engineers meetup:
No Time to Waste

Thursday, Jan 24 2019, 7pm - Newspeak House


Join us for our Radical Engineers meetup at Newspeak House!

Our second meetup is themed around the idea of waste. From fast fashion to endless packaging, we are surrounded by the unnecessary. This meetup is about ways to get rid of it.

This could be dematerialisation, sharing, reuse and transformation.

We are inviting organisations working in this area to meet engineers of all stripes (hackers, makers, designers and other technologists) who wish to contribute their spare time and talents to these projects.
