For Make Works Paris, we focus on collaborative processes between actors, and how the workshops are success stories but also methods to duplicate anywhere else or to adapt by combining them with other manufacturing actors, and inventing new economies.
Make Works is also a way to open the doors of small and medium-sized enterprises sometimes invisible in Paris. Often, these places are not open on their neighboorhood, only known by clients and not by creative actors. This visibility on SMB and makers movement will probably create new relations between actors that do not know each other.
Make Works Paris is being developed in the EU project CENTRINNO
. CENTRINNO is a four-year research project focused on industrial historical sites undergoing transformation. It will showcase the potential of these historic areas to become part of a new industrial revolution that puts citizens at the core of a sustainable transformation. Leveraging the potential of underutilised historic spaces to become creative production and manufacturing hubs, Centrinno envisions sustainable and inclusive futures for the city and its residents.
