Careables is inviting you to our first virtual maker gathering!

Having felt the need for a platform where we can share the knowledge we have gained over the past months related to Covid-19 pandemic, GIG will be hosting its first virtual Careables maker gathering on the 25th of June.

Careables is all about DIY care, making & health and the intersection of maker movements and health care. We think this collaboration is crucial, not only but especially during times of pandemics.

To end the workshop sessions, together with Wikifactory we’ll host a Viral Response round table.
