Le Boc@l came from an initiative from local citizens around a 2 weeks event in 2014 based on digital and exchange. It lead to the creation of a repair café (the 3rd in France).
From there the willing to build a fablab rise to finally end up with this project, that needed to be built for and by the local people. Since it was built attached to a social center, the construction of this place occurs by local contract to help the more in need and young one in search of training.
The vision of the fablab is to be more and more present with the local community, to search for different tools available to improve how people can access the lab and share with others on competencies and projects.
