Fab City Summit Bali

The Bali Fab Fest is the world’s biggest digital fabrication event for local and global innovators to accelerate Bali’s transition towards a regenerative economy. It is a unique event in which the 17th Fab Lab Conference and the 7th Fab City Summit will converge.

The thematic focus in Bali is “Designing Emergent Realities”, aiming to boost the transformation of the island’s economy through the harnessing of local and global knowledge. Our efforts will be orchestrated using the Fab City Full Stack, a multiscalar framework for developing new strategies for distributed production in cities and regions.

1. FCOS Matrix Channel

It’s safe and free forever – join the discussion in the FCOS Channel!

Slack, Discord, Telegram, Teams … there are many services and programs for instant electronic communication. Element is a Matrix-based decentralised collaboration and messaging platform. Decentralised means that there is no central point of control or authority. A company or organisation can simply host its own server and participate in the Matrix network. This ensures unmatched scalability, security and resilience. Matrix has over 60 million users and is growing fast. The Fab City Hamburg Community uses Element as well as many Universities, Germany’s healthcare organizations or the European Meeting of Free & Open source Software Developers e.g. Also Matrix will be part of the FCOS software kit for Fab Cities.

2. FCOS Demo Sessions

Learn more about the FCOS Tech Demo Sessions and check the dates:

One goal of the INTERFACER project is to build, test and validate an open-source digital infrastructure in the form of a federated network to build up and run a local and yet globally connected value creation system. Along the concept of commons-based peer production and throughout the product life cycle, the so-called Fab City OS (OS = Operating System) shall enable cities and regions to bundle, systematize and share data, information and knowledge generated in global networks and communities of practice in order to produce physical artifacts locally in a distributed, sustainable and resilient manner. We are looking to collect first impressions, discover best practices and gather suggestions for features and fresh ideas from OSH Designers, Manufacturers and FabCities representatives. Are you interested in joining this process? Be our guest!
