I've been looking for spaces that regularly host synth, electronics and music related workshops. I just finished designing a kit and running a workshop seems like it could be a cool way to share it with people.

Here are some interesting looking spaces I found in Texas, Spain and here and here in England.

Anyone know of any other places like these? For me I'm mostly looking for a space in the Tri-state area, but it would be great to hear about any spaces people know of near them. A lot of places like this seem to fly under the radar even though they could be a great DIY resource if you happen to have one near you.

You should consider attending the electro-music 2015 event near Port Jervis this coming September. There's nothing exactly like this anywhere.

I saw the electro-music fest when I was looking for meetups in the area, but I wasn't really sure what its focus is. Is it mostly about music making and performance or is there a big DIY instrument building component too?

Every year is a bit different depending one who comes. Music is the central element, and many people who come are into DIY in a huge way. There are DIY-based workshops too. I very much like hearing people make music with DIY gear; the music is always innovative, often by necessity. DIY instruments are often works of art.

IMHO, every electro-musician's setup is DIY because, even if none of the instruments or processors are self-built, the choice of components and the arrangement and interconnections are unique.

It sounds like it would be well worth it for me to go! I'll have to see what I can do as far as schedule and funds, but it is plenty close to me which is a big plus.
