Container on the Bund

  • Communist Youth League which is our host for last year's Maker Carnival is doing a month long Creative Carnival from Sep 5th to Oct 5th. The ideas are containers on the Riverside Promenade ((浦东)滨江大道) on the Pudong side. The containers are visible from the Bund. They have asked if we are interested in having one or more container. See the following PDF for the event arrangement.


  • We can either prepare our own container or use their source and contractor. The cost of container is likely to be between 10,000 to 15,000 RMB. We will own the container.

There was some hackerspace in a container talk among several hackerspaces in the last Shenzhen meetup. We may be able to run crowdfunding campaigns to raise fund for containers and transport.
