Maker Faire Conversations

Saturday, June 16th, Caixa Forum

Program

This year we want to offer to the Maker Faire Barcelona community a dynamic format of interaction from the work of remarkable people that are reinventing how we learn or make tools, who are making space exploration accessible for everyone, who are reinventing time, or who are making us think about and protect our digital civil rights.

The Maker Faire conversations will connect a global leader in the field of knowledge of time, space, robots and more, with a local expert that is making it happen in Barcelona. This is a format for the public to engage in the conversation, where everyone will be able to talk to them, and to interact in an open discussion about the state of the art of making, and the future of technology in society, cities, our planet, and outer space…

(Please, beware the conversations will be held in english with no simultaneous translation)
