Contribute to create a makerspace in an abandoned village

MAKERS, WE NEED YOU ! COME AND MAKE A CHANGE !

We’re planning to launch our first residencies for makers in the following months.

For this first year, our framework is quite open to anyone that wants to contribute to creating the makerspace in the abandoned village of Casa Branca.

If you are up to join for a minimum of 6 weeks with us in Portugal and you can afford your travel, we’re up to support all facilities for you on-site !

Don’t miss the chance to contact us and then we’ll find how to make it happen!

We will be soon open to host makers in the village !

Building a Makers project which starts with the physical reconstruction of the buildings that will grow into an openly accessible, multi-faceted makers community. This includes workspaces and education possibilities to combine digital and analog knowledge, processes and capabilities, in concert with piloting a local revitalization project.

The project aspires to highlight the power and projection of the makers movement in reinventing and building up the sustainable communities of the future, in ways that are replicable and open-sourced.

Casa Branca is a village created in the 1860s, due also to its good water reserves, to support the railroad lines in Alentejo.

It became the main train line junction, from Lisbon (the capital) to either Beja and Évora – two major settlements in Portugal’s mid-region. With a once booming population of 600, it has since been reduced to a population of 80 individuals, mirroring what happened in many inner villages in Portugal.

This left a significant real estate complex in the hands of the railroad company and of the Portuguese public infrastructure company.

Most of this infrastructure is now abandoned and ready for the takeover of a major makers movement vision and project.

“It became the main train line junction, from Lisbon to either Beja and Évora, Most of this infrastructure is now abandoned and ready for the takeover of a major makers movement vision and project.”

Very supportive and behind the development of this project (cultural and infrastructural wise);

Some festivals were already organized there and the issue has been introduced, debated, and embraced by the local population;

Within the setting of this unique existing infrastructure setting (which is begging for revitalization), to host the site of a comprehensive makers community that can support a sustainable and in-transition social and economic ecosystem.

It has the ultimate goal to launch and settle a makers community of reference in Portugal, to facilitate and provide an enabling environment for the current and next generation of makers.

The village of Casa Branca decided to give us (Fazmor) free access to some of their building for 30 years!

This incredible partnership makes this project a new turn! We, as makers, have gotten a green light to invest energy and skills for the long term!

Of course, we are willing to work hard to attract funds from a large scope of possibilities like - By providing services for those that need access to our tools and help, - Also we are open to collaboration with the public sector as school or university, - Membership and donation - Open for grants on any project that suits our values and skills
