Design Thinking in social innovation for Design, Coordination, Organization and Communication of Maker Faire Galicia.
Maker Faires are the most important innovation fairs in the world and are usually associated with new technologies. There are currently around 200 per year, with more than 1.5 million visitors in 35 different countries.
From Designthinking.gal we analyzed the maker concept and contextualized it within our Galician environment. Thus, we redesigned the traditional concept of the maker of fairs, giving value, in addition to new technologies, to projects of different crafts, gastronomy, music or urban art.
The first edition of Maker Faire Galicia which had a total of more than 18,000 visitors was the third in Europe in number of attendees, only surpassed by the Maker Faire of Rome and Paris.
