Drink a coffee, make some noise!
Welcome to kaf•fe nɔɪz, your meeting point during the 2022 edition of Aveiro Tech Week. Carefully designed for experimentation and interaction by Navalha / VIC NIC and supported by the Municipality of Aveiro, it combines coffee culture and DIY electronics in an informal setting where you can stop, relax and connect, but also learn and experiment.
Located in the very heart of Aveiro, at the charming cloisters of Igreja da Misericórdia, the space combines a laidback and inviting lounge area, a speciality coffee stand by barista Carlos Calisto (Porta do Café), a craft beer & cocktail stand by Ana Rita Lopes, and an DIY electronics workshop, open to everyone who wishes to learn how to build their own experimental sound devices.
kaf•fe nɔɪz is open from 2h30 PM to 10h30 PM from Monday 10 to Thursday 13th and from 2h30 PM to 01h30 AM on Friday 14 and Saturday 15. In partnership with organisations and events such as Aveiro Tech Week, MTF Labs and NCF-UA, we’ve designed our own programming for the week, interesting and precise but laidback enough to also allow for spontaneous artistic manifestations.
