(A calendar should appear here)

  • A meeting on 8.12 to develop the idea of a monthly open event and especially to decide what to do in the first one in January: Open what?
  • The first of our monthly collaboration events, in January: "Open ?" TODO, see above --^


Hacklabs Finland is a loose organization of the different hackerspaces in Finland.

Hackerspaces are physical places where people can meet to learn, socialise and collaborate on projects, as well as share knowledge, tools and material (especially recycled material). A hackerspace can also be a kind of hub connecting different groups and workspaces in addition to being a friendly place for newcomers to try out stuff and connect with all that is happening under the umbrella of technology and arts.

Don't be scared if this sounds too vague or somehow off putting in it's generality. If what you need is just a place to realise your project idea, then please, come. After all, a hackerspace is defined by it's participants, not some introductional text in wiki ;)

A more elaborate description in finnish: Esittely

Our goal is to support the formation of new hacker spaces in Finland and provide a platform for exchanging experiences and ideas between existing ones.

We provide a Mailing List and IRC Channel for general discussion about hackerspaces and related activities in Finland. We will also have a Blog feed that combines the blogs of Finnish hackerspaces, and a Calendar with hackerspace related upcoming events in Finland. This wiki can be used to collect any common documentation for Finnish hackerspaces, and also to document Projects done in or around hackerspaces.

You are welcome to host your hackerspace site here (please discuss on the mailing list), or if that is too restrictive, we recommend using semantic mediawiki as are we and so we can semantically connect all the knowledge that is produced in hackerspaces worldwide. is the host that we use which is free both as in no money and hassle free :)

Hackerspaces in Finland


Häckläb on sosiaalinen työpaja (kansainvälisesti hackerspace), luovan teknologian käytön ja kehittämisen keskus joka on avoin kaikille kiinnostuneille. Fyysisen tilan itsessään on tarkoitus tarjota työkaluja ja materiaalia (erityisesti kierrätettyä) ym. puitteet kaikenlaiseen rakenteluun. Toisaalta ehkä oleellisempaa on sosiaalinen aspekti, eli tilan on tarkoitus toimia kohtaamispaikkana, edistäen verkostoitumista, ideoiden vaihtoa ja kaikenlaista yhteistyötä. Tilan kolmas osa on virtuaalinen, ja meillä onkin jo kaikille avoin sähköpostilista ja vapaasti muokattava wiki, jota juuri luet.

Maailmalla jo satoja vastaavia tiloja (, Ruotsissakin kolme. Tarvitsemme suomeenkin samanlaista toimintaa, siksi tämä projekti. Paljon monipuolisempi kuvaus kaikesta mitä tällainen tila voi olla, sekä mitä kaikkea se voi mahdollistaa mikä muuten olisi useimpien ulottumattomissa: Esittely Bold text
