FAB16 Montréal is here!!

FAB16 Montréal | Canada  #Fabricating the Commons

FAB16, the annual international Fab Lab Network conference, brings together members of the fab community, as well as government representatives, academic researchers and experts in the field of digital fabrication, to present, vision, explore, collaborate and create community around digital fabrication, manufacturing, technology and innovation.

This year's conference will be hosted at the beautiful McGill University campus in the center of Montréal. Our conference theme is “Fabricating the Commons”, finding ways to collectively work toward the common good: producing and sharing knowledge and tools, managing resources as commons, working toward a sustainable planet through the lens of digital fabrication, technology development and ecological innovations. 

FAB16 attendees come from the more than 1800 Fab Labs across the world and include: fabbers, eco-friendly designers, artists, teachers, researchers, academics, experts from industry and more.

Throughout the week-long event attendees will participate in hands-on workshops, hear from some of the top researchers in the field, and envision a sustainable future. This year, the conference will culminate with the Fab City Summit, a day for everyone to explore how we can support and become locally productive, globally connected cities and citizens. Of course, the conference will conclude with the Fab Festival weekend, free to everyone and open to the entire Montréal community. Adults and children will discover new technologies, participate in workshops,  learn, play and see demonstrations from Fab Labs around the world.
