We are Make Hack Void, a Hackerspace* in Canberra, Australia.
Our space (Map) is a community workshop in Belconnen where members can come to work on their projects, get access to tools and expertise, and meet like-minded people. Membership is $50/year ($30 concession) and there are a range of access options.
We hold Maker Meetups on the 1st, 3rd & 5th Tuesdays of each month where anyone at all can chat, show and tell, get help or advice, and talk about their projects. You don't have to be a member to come to a Meetup.
Our group includes people with extremely diverse interests. Fibreglass moulds to FPGA electronics, Arduinos to DIY pizza ovens. Plus lots more. We're all interested in making things, hacking on projects, and we're not afraid of voiding warranties if we have to.
MakeHackVoid is dedicated to a harassment-free experience for everyone. See our Code of conduct.

Concerned about the constant revelations of NSA surveillance that are turning up in your facebook timelines and twitter feeds? Worried about what your social media, email and other communication platforms of choice are doing with your data besides handing it over to foreign governments? However, not quite ready to turn your back on the internet just yet?

The Ada Initiative Allies Workshop focuses on what individual people can do to make their workplace or community a better, more positive place for women. The workshop teaches people how to respond to sexism in a productive way, whether online, in the workplace, or in person. More detail about the workshop is available here: http://adainitiative.org/what-we-do/workshops-and-training.
A hackerspace is a place where people with common interests, usually in science, technology, or digital or electronic art can meet, socialise and collaborate.
When we talk about Hackerspaces and Hacking, we do not mean any kind of unauthorised cracking into third party computer systems, or any other illegal activities. "Real hackers call these people ‘crackers’ and want nothing to do with them."
