"[email protected] is a collaboration between Europe's top research and education centers on the field of digital fabrication and its ever-growing relationship with the arts, design and traditional craftsmanship. With the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, this strong international network of leaders in the Fab Lab network come together to join forces on diverse programmes creating opportunities for artists, designers and craftspeople to explore and exchange ideas across borders."
Residenties and workshops
"One of the main goals of the [email protected] Project is the creation of residency programmes for creative professionals to develop projects that explore the integration of 3-D digital fabrication systems into their processes of design and production, to realize a new outcome. Residencies take place in Barcelona, Paris and Plymouth, facilitating cross-European mobility of creators and generating international opportunities for emerging talent.
The participants selected for the residencies fall within the target group of the [email protected] project, namely designers, craftspeople and artists. They are tasked with the development of a project which represents their background, previous body of work and area of expertise whilst at the same time ingrates the digital fabrication techniques learned at the workshop session offered to them.
[email protected] Workshop Barcelona:
These workshops are designed to impact directly the bridging of the “digital divide”, fostering and curating the creation of products and projects which clearly represent the spirit of the [email protected] project. They are directed at all members from the European creative sectors such as product designers, fashion designers and craftspeople such as potters, metal smiths, glassmakers, woodworkers, ceramists and mixed media artists. The Workshops are based on a 5 day BootCamp model developed by the FabLab Network and involve both theoretic and practical instruction."
