Make Works Catalonia

Make Works Catalonia is situated in the Catalan Manchester: Poblenou. Poblenou is a neighbourhood in Barcelona. Historically known for its industrial heritage, Make Works Catalonia is starting on a smaller scale engaging with the old and new manufacturers of Poblenou, to eventually grow and explore the potentiality of our region.   

Make Works Catalonia is situated at Fab Lab Barcelona and is part of two European projects; CENTRINNO and Distributed Design. At Fab Lab Barcelona we host the coordination of Make Works while simultaneously exploring our own manufacturing capacity within the neighbourhood Poblenou, Barcelona. 

Fab Lab Barcelona is an innovation centre rethinking the way we live, work and play in cities. We do this through research in the framework of European funded projects, creating immersive learning programmes and education and working with companies for innovative products and services. The EU Project CENTRINNO has given us the opportunity to kick-start the Make Works Catalonia region. Learning from and with our neighbours in Poblenou what making, crafting and producing locally means. Through CENTRINNO especially we are looking into industrial heritage sites, how they have transformed who is residing in today. Showcasing the creative people of Poblenou, we are hoping to support or local economy.
