Building Community with the Open Lab Blueprint

Open labs have reframed the biolab as a community resource. They attract a diverse, vibrant community of makers and citizen scientists. Being a relatively new phenomenon, with more being founded every year, Genspace realized we were in a unique position to share our experience in order to help others starting a lab in their own community through the Open Lab Blueprint. The Open Lab Blueprint is designed to enable people to launch an open lab from scratch. It is a system for fostering the DIY bio community around the world via cross-platform documentation and open DIY tools. During our conversation we will be taking the audience through a journey of utilizing the Blueprint to launch a community biolab, discussing why we chose these main components, and how, through our own experiences as a diverse community of makers and scientists we were able to come together to create something larger than ourselves.

Ashley Quinn is a designer and activist interested in the cross-section between art, science and technology. Through her work she bridges the gap between environmental awareness, human action, and behavior change by creating novel experiences and design interventions. When she's not working on personal projects or running We Less Than Three, a Brooklyn-based design studio, she can most probably be found in her local community bio lab and running her monthly peer lecture series - Presentation Party Night.Hide the rest
