Makers Talk Mobility
Makers share their experience and views on mobility on a series of interviews, conducted by UPTEC and Makery, aiming to give us in-depth knowledge of the makers’ universe and needs in relation to mobility programmes.
“Maker Culture is trying to have a smaller footprint and thinking of a more equal coherent system. In a way that you pay more attention on where materials come from, how things travel in the world.”
“The inspirational point of view within makers practices is the openness of trying to share as much different experiences, knowledges, tools and methods as we can and make those available.”
“For me maker culture really is about the culture of critical making, breaking things open and looking at how they work as well as creating and re-purposing things and making them more useful in new and creative ways.”
“I would define maker culture as an emerging cultural movement that, following the open and sharing spirit of the science Ethos, and using the potential of Internet, has contributed to one of the greatest transfers of knowledge in the history of civilizations.”
“Maker Culture”, which could also be called “Do-It-Yourself culture”, is a movement to share very informal skills, especially through distributed networks.
