STORY - Fablab in a rural environment
In 2015 our team created Buinho Association and with it the first fablab in rural Portugal. It was a very disruptive approach, started by a team of designers, teachers and researchers from digital and creative fields. Today Buinho is a European reference for our residency program, as well as our educational and community related programs.
VISION - Arts, Technology & Society
Our vision is to be an inspiring place which fosters creativity, collaboration and innovation. We operate at the intersection of arts, technology and society. Our work focuses on emergent technologies as instruments of social change, resilience, and sustainability. We are guided by the values of fairness, openness and inclusion.
Artists, makers, designers, educators, researchers — individuals and teams — everybody is invited.
“Buinho is a work in progress — we are, together with our residents always improving the spaces and adapting them based on the overall vision and current needs.”
