Paul Bristow, one of the co-founders, will present the lab and their open approach to entrepreneurship.

Cristina Olivotto is a physicist by training and worked in the domain of science communication and education with national and international organisations since 2003 in the context of SterrenLab. She is currently setting up with Paul Bristow in Geneva a Makeshop, an open space for makers - beginners and advanced - inspired by constructivism and social inclusion. She’ll present the Makeshop concept.

Raphaëlle Mueller is a photographer and visual artist interested in the intersection of natural and social systems - specially the ones influenced by humans (the world as a laboratory). The starting point of her research is this photography (below) of a singular red lake filled with residual bauxite (by product of aluminium production) in Romania. A mission to trace post-sovietique industrial remains since 2014. Please, click on the photo for more information.
