ViennaOpen Festival 2016:
how to open things,
on the Maker Fair Vienna
16 and 17 April 2016

For the fifth year in a row, ViennaOpen is festival that deals with contemporary changes in technology and society. ViennaOpen is a collaborative initiative of individuals, groups and projects. An open innovative process, it deals with all aspects of openness. This year’s motto is how to open things. The first part of the festival is organised during the first Maker Fair Vienna.

In 2016, for the first time over two hundred makers will be presenting their projects, ideas and innovations at the well-known venue of the Semperdepot, the ateliers of the Vienna University of Fine Arts, to a bigger audience. The presenting makers will be DIY-specialists, designers and hobbyists with a variety of educational backgrounds.

From the 16th to the 17th of April 2016, ViennaOpen celebrates the variety of ideas and projects that are the result of open innovative processes, but also the idea of collaboration, shared resources and open innovation together with the growing maker-scene of Austria.
