Sylvia will be part of a panel at Fab Lab 12 Symposium in Shenzhen China on the topic of “Organizations that Make Organizations.”
Each year members of the more than 1,000 worldwide Fab Labs gather to share, collaborate, explore and, of course, fabricate. This year, August 2016, we meet in Shenzhen, China a historically important city for manufacturing and making. Today China is embarking on a long-term program to foster innovation and technology, so the city is a perfect incubator for the digital fabrication revolution fab labs are bringing to the world.
This year our focus will be on Fab Lab 2.0, the ability of a fab lab to use its own digital fabrication tools to produce a fab lab and to produce the manufacturing machines of the future.
We’ll have the annual Symposium, the Fab City pledge and the Fab Academy Graduation.
