digital fabricationFab LabMakerOnline Gathering
The FABXLive, this year’s global Fab Lab Network conference, is an online, distributed, FREE conference that gives us an opportunity to stay connected, reflect and engage deeply around Fab Lab and other community responses to COVID-19, the current state of the world and our vision for the future. With more than 2000 Fab Labs in 126 countries worldwide, we will bring together members of the international Fab Lab Network, government representatives, the manufacturing industry, artists, teachers, academic researchers and experts in the field of digital fabrication, to present, envision, innovate, create community, disseminate best practices in digital fabrication and discuss solutions to our world’s challenges during this unprecedented time in history.
July 27-July 30 we will host expert panels, keynote speakers and members of our network. On July 31, we will have a GLOBAL FAB DAY, a day dedicated to all of us inventing and imagining locally and together.
FABxLive takes a team of experts and coordinators to make it a smooth and thoughtful experience for everyone. We made a point of making sure that this conference would be open to everyone and there would be no monetary barrier. But the meeting does cost money to run. Please consider making a contribution to help with the costs of FABXLive. We very much appreciate your kind donation, at any level.
FABX Events integrate knowledge and collaborations that happen during the year in over 2,000 fab labs across the world. Members of the community propose content through workshops, talks, discussions and working sessions. FABX provides time and space for networking and for hands-on making with digital fabrication. This is an opportunity to brainstorm and share your projects, collaborations, ideas, and work with the global community. Please note that to give everyone in the global community an opportunity to participate, we ask that anything you submit be adaptable for an online format and online interaction, and that includes options of pre-recording or leading something real-time and Live.
We also encourage you to register TODAY in this link to join the network. Our new FABxLive member platform will allow us to share, contribute, promote and interact with each other leading up to and during the conference.
