This month, we're featuring John Dardaganis in our community spotlight. John participated in our 2021 Makeathon as a Maker on Team Charlie.

How did you become involved in the TOM: Melbourne Makeathon?

I first heard about the TOM organisation from a vlog post by a prominent figure in the Maker community who was encouraging makers to sign up. So I applied online for the Melbourne Makeathon back in 2017 and have since been involved in two more amazing TOM events, with the most recent being in 2021 on Team Charlie.

What was your experience of the Makeathon? With a background in design,  I have really enjoyed making tangible prototypes to assist Need-Knowers overcome a practical challenge in their life. In doing so, I have found the Makeathon events to be incredibly rewarding exercises in empathy and collaboration. What would you say to others thinking about getting involved?  I would encourage anybody with just an inkling that they could help someone in a meaningful way to not think twice about it and get involved!
