TORONTO WEARABLES MEETUP 01: LAUNCH
Friday August 19th, 2016

On Tuesday, March 16th, Angella & I hosted the first ever Toronto Wearables Meetup! Here is the description of the event:

The Toronto Wearables Meetup is a gathering of people interested in wearable technology, fashion, wearable electronics, soft circuits, electronic textiles, emerging materials, and other creative and innovative approaches to things that live on the body. This Meetup is a gathering artists, fashion designers, industrial designers,  textile enthusiasts, engineers, researchers, students, and anyone interested in these emerging and intersecting fields.

Our first meeting will provide a casual opportunity to discuss what’s happening in Toronto and connect with others. Those working in the field are encouraged to bring images or projects to share. These conversations will serve to strengthen existing connections, reveal new ones, and inform the structure of future Meetups to come.

There were over 30 attendees whose interests included sewing, industrial design, mobile development, pigeons, environmental health, street games, augmented reality, performance art, fashion design, writing, media literacy, art, electronics, painting, installation work, wearable art, breaking boundaries, fibre, hardware, social media, and urban environments. They came form all over the city, representing groups including OCAD, the CFC, Ryerson, Hacklab, George Brown, Site 3, University of Toronto, and Interaccess.
