Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab) is a grassroots innovation organisation, based in Manchester. Their primary areas of focus are science and technology alongside arts and culture.
MadLab support a diverse range of communities and activities – from monthly meetups and courses through to public experimentation with new and emerging technologies, and collaborating with others to deliver new, interesting and exciting projects.
"We believe that the best way to understand fast-paced technological innovation is by getting involved, through experimentation and play. In particular, MadLab is an advocate of hacking – taking things apart, figuring out how they work and re-purposing or re-imagining them. This is a principle we apply to everything we do, whether it’s designing new digital devices and services or finding improved ways of working with our partners and communities."@madlabuk
