Published on

MakerCircus is a traveling laboratory that aims at spreading ideals of innovation and open design, reaching those contexts which are geographically and culturally “far” from the main urban centers.

The lab will be equipped with tools for the digital fabrication and will promote workshops and activities where co-design can be experimented thanks to technologies as 3D printing, laser cutters and smart objects, allowing to discover the pleasure of sharing and collaboration.

By visiting different local contexts, MakerCircus aims at linking them and creating an always growing network.

The proposed activities are mainly directed to schools, universities, makerspaces, hackerspaces and, in general, to each tech/culture oriented association.
