How do we cultivate a resilient and responsive distributed design community?

From August 23rd to October 17th Fab Lab Barcelona is hosting a weekly online chat series, where guests share their personal experiences of responding to moments of crisis. The aim is to collaboratively work on a shared vision, align values, and develop best practices.

Enrico Bassi will join us on September 20th from 16:00 – 17:00. Enrico who graduated in “Design & Engineering” and “Product Design” at the Polytechnic University of Milan, coordinated the first Italian Fab Lab (digital manufacturing laboratory) in 2011: Fab Lab Italia. Subsequently, he was president and coordinator of FabLab Torino, the public lab of Officine Arduino. In 2015, he completed FabAcademy. In 2016, he became an Instructor and Global Reviewer for the new edition of the Fab Academy, held at the Opendot Fab Lab, which he has coordinated since 2014 (www.opendotlab.it). For Opendot, he also supervises European and international projects on the topic of open-source health solutions (www.careables.org) and the circular economy (https://reflowproject.eu/). He has taught and continues to teach Digital Manufacturing and Design Engineering at various universities and academies, including LABA (Free Academy of Fine Arts, Brescia), NABA (New Academy of Fine Arts, Milan), Domus Academy (Milan), and the Master of Advanced Studies in Interaction Design at SUPSI (Lugano).

The Resilient Makers Stories will be facilitated by Jean Luc Pierite, as part of the MDEF Residency Program. They are part of the European project Reservist that aims to establish a network of ‘reservist cells’, resilient networks that can be activated within 48hrs to switch to manufacturing medical products and services that are spiking in demand. Reservist has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 101016041.
