Alternative Design Capital (ADC) arranges a meeting to bring together various emerging ‘fab lab’ initiatives and other related projects. Everyone who is interested in the topic is welcome to the meeting!
Fab labs offer tools such as laser cutters and 3D printers which designers can use to produce prototypes or small sets of unique objects. Fab labs usually also have an educational purpose and are open for amateurs as well. In addition to fab labs, there are plans to establish some open workshop spaces with focus on do-it-yourself crafts. There are also aspirations to initiate a new festival to celebrate various forms of do-it-yourself crafts and culture.
The invitation has been sent to following organisations / communities:
* Aalto Media Factory
* Aalto University Digital Design Laboratory
* Trashlab / Pixelversity programme of Pixelache Helsinki
* Laser Cut Studio
* HUB Helsinki
* Dodo ry
* Ore.e – Refineries
Date & time: Wednesday 14 December 2011, 6-8 pm
Venue: Valvomo / Oranssi, Suvilahti, Kaasutehtaankatu 1, Helsinki
