Dear Fabricators, Makers, Entrepreneurs, Hackers, Artists, and Crafters,
After eleven years and 450 fab labs, the International Fab Lab Network (fabfoundation.org) is returning to Boston, it’s birthplace, to celebrate how digital fabrication tools and technologies are transforming the world, from the global economy to our local communities. The Fab Festival is the public outreach of Fab11 and will connect local and International innovators while providing an educational, entertaining hands-on experience for the Boston area.
This free event will be held on August 8th and 9th at the Reggie Lewis Center in Roxbury Crossing in Boston. It’s a one-of-a-kind opportunity to showcase your creative, groundbreaking and engaging work in the fab/maker community with a passionate and curious audience.
