The producing, self-sufficient, sustainable city will be the central theme of the third edition of Maker Faire Barcelona, which will take place on 16 and 17 June, joining the Sónar 2018 activities.
Maker Faire is one of the world’s most significant event dedicated to this movement of digital creation, bringing together engineers, artists, designers, hackers, hobbyists, and scientists.
In this year’s edition, will explore the city through six thematic areas that propose reformulating consumption and production in the urban environment: food, energy, mobility, advanced manufacturing, education and learning, health and environment, and, –to celebrate Sónar’s 25th anniversary– a section dedicated to Space.
In the exhibition area, there will be humanoid robots, the latest 3D printers, future textiles, 3D food printers, urban vertical agriculture projects and autonomous driving simulators, among other contents.
Also, there will be a program of workshops and a series of conversations featuring Mitchel Baker, founder of Mozilla; Richard Stallman, father of free software; Ariel Ekblaw, founder of the Space Exploration Initiative of the MIT Media Lab; and David Cuartielles, co-founder of Arduino.
