Maker Communities Respond to COVID-19 – Online Meetup
Maker communities around the world have responded to the COVID-19 crisis swiftly with a mission to save lives. In this online session, we invite makers who are on the ground, fighting the virus in real-time, to share their experiences and answer your questions.
Maker communities around the world have responded to the COVID-19 crisis swiftly with a mission to save lives. These teams of makers, manufacturing companies, designers, citizen scientists, engineers, medical professionals and other stakeholders are swiftly gathering in a bottom-up, avengers-style to fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
These local actors are not only leveraging the power of quick prototyping that digital fabrication can provide, but are also acting as important organizers of essential logistic projects, creating solutions that require quick collaboration happening at the local level.
In this online session, we invite maker community leaders to share their experiences and answer your questions. Participants can join via Zoom video conferencing (sign up here!) or on YouTube Live on FabCafeTV.
