In the first part of the workshop, we present our objectives. We then move on to three engaging conversations and interviews that provide insights into the fablab context by hearing from its members.

Afterwards, we open a discussion for all the participants on the issues of technical accessibility, production space and open source. We also reflect, on the representation of Fablab values in different contexts.

Arthur Clayssen, Project Manager at Villette Makerz, on the circular economy, future projects and how
fablabs promote sustainability.

Charlotte Andre, Fab Manager at Villette Makerz, on the benefits, the diversity and the connection with the public in the Fablab.

Alyssia Saidani and Chloé Menard, part of the mediation team, on the weekend activities of Villette Makerz,
