The first VULCA Community meeting was organised in the city of Moulins (France) with the collaboration of the French Fablab Network that organised at the same time their national meeting called #OctoberMake. (October 2017)
It was the very first time for the community to meet and discuss about Vulca initiative.
This first networking helped and highlighted new people (makers and hackers) we may know that could be interested to involve more with us as a hosting or sending organisation.
We also discussed about the experience of each of us with the existing EU programs and what we can learn from them.
We lauched our first call for makers and labs to organise a residency experience.
Before saying goodbye, we organised a visit of the Fablab of Moulins and the old city centre.
We all agreed that it is needed to extend our knowledge of the makers’ movement in Europe by launching more VULCA TOURs + participating in more European conferences. We were encouraged to organise a meeting with MEPs in the beginning of 2018 to introduce our vision of #MakersMobility in Europe.
