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 the link below. Our new FABxLive member platform will allow us to share, contribute, promote and interact with each other leading up to and during the conference.
Get involved with the community and share your knowledge and your thoughts around a particular topic with a discussion-based workshop.
Theoretical workshops are an opportunity for discussion and collaborative development around networking and challenges that arise in the community, it is the best way to expose your ideas to those that have a same interest. It is the best way to create, develop and come up with new ideas that will help everyone involved.
Hands-on workshop where others can follow along while in their local Fab Lab or at home. These can be pre-recorded or live, and can be done in your native language or in English, depending on your preference.
Please keep in mind that, given the circumstances around Covid-19, not everyone will have access to tools you would find in a Fab Lab unless they can purchase them ahead of time. Whether you are new to FABx Events, or have been to many workshops are a great way to meet new people and share knowledge in the network. For some you will need to purchase your materials locally so please check them out in advance. This is also a chance to rethink what workshops we can do with things you can buy at local stores or find in most anyone's home!
After all of this ZOOM time, we need to get active during our conference, 3-5 min fabercise time provided by memebers of our community. So get ready to do some quick workout, or at least a nice laugh!
