The official submission process is in full swing, and we’re keen to hear from you about your ideas and plans for how you’d like to be involved. We’ll start the discussion with you relatively informally here, to get a sense for how best to shape the event to support you and the community as a whole.

If you’re a maker, tinkerer, crafter, fixer, hacker, bushie, hobbyist, cosplayer, upcycler, sustainability enthusiast, mixed-media artist or performer, or you like to invent things, we want you to be an active part of Eurisko.

Please provide your initial submission via the contributor contact form. There are only a small number of required fields on the form: fill those in, click submit, and you’re done. We’ve provided some other fields that you can optionally use to provide us with additional details. Feel free to provide as little or as much as you like.

Once we’ve considered your submission, we’ll send you an email or give you a call to discuss further details.


Contributor Options

We have a number of different ways you can get involved:


We have a number of communal activity and workshop spaces available on a time-shared basis. Our preference is for shorter workshops and activities: we recommend if possible aiming for about 20 minutes including setup time.

One of our primary desires for Eurisko is for people to see how things work and to have hands-on experiences with projects and to experience new skills. These can be helper assisted but self-paced, self-driven activities, or they can be instructor facilitated workshops in which the participants at Eurisko get to try things first hand for themselves.

It’s completely OK for you to recover your out-of-pocket expenses running a workshop, and you are welcome to organise how you’d like to do that: our recommendation is to try to keep most workshops to under $10 per person. Let us know what you’re planning and we’ll try to let people know that in advance of the event days.


If you want to have an ongoing presence at the event, a specific place where people can find you over the two days, exhibiting is a good option. Options start from a single 1.8M x .75M Trestle table and approximately 3M^2, and we can scale these up in 2, 4 and 6 table arrangements. If you’d like to discuss something different, just let us know via the contact form below on this page.

Of course, you don’t have to exhibit in isolation: exhibitors are encouraged to run workshops or give demonstrations and talks.

Demonstrating/ Performing/ Speaking

We have a number of communal areas, including a stage area, in which demonstrations and performances can be given. We also have number of areas from which talks and discussions can be hosted. These can cater from 8 to about 25 people in a session. Again, we’re encouraging shorter sessions by default: 20 minutes including setup time.


If you’d like to have a static or moving installation – one that people can interactive with or otherwise – that showcases DIY concepts and ideas, we’d love to hear from you. Just let us know roughly how big your installation is, whether it needs power etc, and again we can work through the details.
