Raspberry Fields is a brand-new event led by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with lots of help from our community of young people, educators, hobbyists, and tech enthusiasts. It will be a chance for people of all ages and skill levels to have a go at getting creative with tech, as well as a celebration of all that our digital makers have already learnt and achieved, whether through taking part in Code Clubs, CoderDojos, or Raspberry Jams, or through trying our resources at home.
On the weekend of Saturday 30 June and Sunday 1 July 2018 at the Cambridge Junction, you will have the chance to inspire your inner inventor! Learn about amazing projects others in the community are working on, such as cool robots and wearable technology; have a go at a variety of hands-on activities from home automation projects to remotely controlled vehicles and more; see fascinating science- and technology-related talks and musical performances. After your visit, you’ll be excited to go home and get making! For those among you who'd like to bring along young children or less technologically minded family members or friends, there’ll be plenty for them to enjoy — with lots of festival-themed activities such as face painting, fun performances, free giveaways, and delicious food, Raspberry Fields will have something for everyone! Tickets are free for everyone under 16, and £5 if you are aged 16 or older.
We are currently looking for people who'd like to contribute activities, talks, or performances with digital themes to the festival. This could be something like live music, dance, or other show acts; Q&A sessions or presentations; or drop-in making activities. In addition, we’re looking for artists who’d like to showcase interactive digital installations, for proud makers who are keen to exhibit their projects, and for vendors who’d like to join in. We particularly encourage young people to showcase projects they’ve created or deliver talks on their digital making journey! If you'd like to take part in Raspberry Fields, let us know via this form, and we'll be in touch with you soon.
