Since the end of February 2022 and the commencement of war in Ukraine, Vulca started working more closely with the makers’ community to search for solutions for displaced Ukrainian makers, and those who are still in Ukraine. In this article we will share what was done, and how you can help.
In 2021, Vulca merged with a French NGO – MakerTour – that gave us the platform they developed (https://www.makertour.fr). This platform was initially used for documenting fablabs and makerspaces all over the world with an emphasis on different projects they run within their space. As a Vulca NGO, we are very interested in assessing existing programs covering makers mobility and in facilitating the mobility of makers, so we started to extend this documentation, to eventually create a go-to platform for makers looking for residency opportunities. The infrastructure this platform had… Lire la suite »The development of a platform dedicated to makers’ mobility.

Since the beginning, Vulca has been regularly requested to create connections between people and/or spaces. If at the beginning we did “on the go”, gradually we have developed a specific methodology with a focus on human proximity. Alquimétricos, maker organization originating from Brazil, contacted Vulca to help with establishing new connections in Europe. This is the story of how we did it. 2020 Update: Due to COVID-19 pandemic context, most events in Europe and around the world were postponed or canceled.

What is a Pilot Project A pilot project is an actual implementation of the working system with real people, but on a limited scale. European Union with Erasmus or Creative Europe formed exchange program to encourage the mobility of citizens in Europe, but at this stage, the makers movement can only make it by hand, in small quantities. Some of the makerspaces are interested, but we need more makerspace-use to iron out the kinks, and justify the scaling-up of maker mobility programs in Europe. Vulca want europe to try and… Lire la suite »Makers Mobility Pilot Project
