Why are you making?

Why are you making?

Hi, my name is Corinna and I want to know why you make things! I am a PhD student at Lund University in Sweden and do research on makerspaces. I am interested in the role makerspaces have in society. At Maker Faire Rome I want to talk to you makers and hear your thoughts. Why do you think making is important, for you, but also for society?
I will meet you in small groups (5-8 people) and we will talk about why making matters to you. Anybody can join, but please commit to stay on for the full session.
Besides contributing to a research project on makerspaces you will have the opportunity to share your thoughts and reflections on why you think making matters and meet other people who share your passion.
