About Making it Digital

Making it Digital is an offshoot of Digital Skills For Women (DSW), which has been running since 2013. DSW was started as a response to the UK Government’s Digital Challenge,  specifically the need to tackle the growing gender divide in the digital technology sector. Since then, MadLab has run over 50 training sessions under the DSW banner, benefitting over 250 unemployed and underemployed women.

Nominated for a “Women in STEM” award as part of Manchester City Council's International Women’s Day celebrations, we return with our most ambitious project to date.


About MadLab

Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab) is a grassroots innovation organisation, based in Manchester UK. Our primary areas of focus are science and technology; arts and culture.

We support a diverse range of communities and activities – from monthly meetups and courses through to public experimentation with new & emerging technologies, and collaborating with others to deliver new, interesting and exciting projects.


About the venue

All workshops and seminars will take place in MadFabLab, an open-access workshop for hackers, makers, and tinkerers and Central Manchester's only official Fab Lab. 

MadFabLab is based at Plant NOMA, just a short walk from Victoria train station and Shudehill bus and tram stops.
