Collectively Independent

In its 15th round, and under the title “Collectively Independent” Fab15 will be held to build strategic alliances to promote the inclusion of marginalized groups, and the transfer of knowledge and best practices that empower communities to solve their own problems.

We will look at how we can enable each other as a community of individual makers, Fab labs and cities around the world to become the catalysts of our own lives by innovating.


Tracks



Entrepreneurship for Growth

As the global fab ecosystem grows every year, we will discuss how individuals, communities and economies could leverage that growth in creating shared value. Fab15 will examine how the concept of Creating Shared Value can foster entrepreneurship, create jobs, impact economies and societies as whole.

Towards 4.0

Building on both the digital revolutions and the industrial revolutions, we envision in Fab15 the future scenarios of lab 2.0 towards industry 4.0.

Making to Learn

Whether it is learning to make or making to learn, Fab15 examines how Fab labs could be used to foster both informal and formal education methodologies and processes.

Design for Change

Fab15 looks into the creative modes of production such as digital fabrication machines, and the spaces they occupy, as well as their role in enriching arts and crafts and preserving cultural heritage. It also examines the concept of sustainable design to create human-centered products, tools, and assistive technologies.

Fab City

The Fab City global initiative is a movement of development and change towards a more sustainable future for cities. Fab15 will examine urban transition towards locally productive and globally connected cities.
