Workshop Grigri Pixel Madrid 2016
Makers and energy in African cities
Within the framework of the Objetos Comunes project, the first edition of the Grigri Pixel workshop was held in Madrid between February and March 2016.
Under the pretext of manufacturing energy self-sufficient urban objects, the project sought to create alliances between spaces of citizen management from different African countries and the self-managed community garden Esta es una plaza.
To this end, Modou Ngom from Dakar, Zineb Fasiki from Casablanca, Kokou Elolo from Lomé, and Mamadou Coulibaly from Bamako were invited, four makers, handymen, activists and artists, representatives of four groups linked to the promotion and dissemination of open-source manufacturing.
The fabrication workshop was conducted in close collaboration with a group of twenty-six participants. For two weeks, two magical objects were collectively designed and manufactured to protect the space of Esta es una plaza.
