Cardboard MakerSpaces and social inclusion

Constructing buildings out of cardboard is a low stakes and familiar way to explore materials and to express personally meaningful ideas. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll build representations of our current or ideal space for making and tinkering using cardboard, hot glue and LEDs.

This initial activity will spark a discussion on the values that animate these physical spaces, with an emphasis on developing a culture of social inclusion, providing multiple access points and supporting different modes of personal and community engagement. Participants in this session will seed a collaborative installation that will animate the Ecsite MakerSpace and grow over the course of the conference with new elements.

Wondering what a MakerSpace is? This is our definition for the Ecsite conference. Don't hesitate to pop by during one of the drop-in slots!
