Future Unknown

At this stage, Switch On is on hold until further notice.

Venue Suggestions are welcome.

We're open to suggestions for a venue. Fire Station 101 is no longer a space for Technology Innovation and is also no longer up for hire. We have had a very cheap quote from the Leichhardt Community Centre in Ipswich so that is always an option should we ever get up and running again.

We're also looking for committee members to help us plan an awesome come-back. If you want to help out, please let us know.
