Calling all artists for projects and collaborations, Future Artist Makers boot camp is a two week workshop taking place in the Fab Lab Limerick this July. Future Artist Makers is a programme which explores the potential for artists and creatives to experiment with digital fabrication in their artistic practice.

The Future Artist Makers Summer bootcamp has been developed by The Nerve Centre in Derry, Ultralab in Madrid and Fab Lab Limerick and co-funded by Creative Europe programme of the European Union. The summer bootcamp is an active workshop part of the Future Artist Makers programme, which gives artists, students and recent graduates an insight into how digital fabrication can enhance their future creative careers, offering the opportunity to participate in an artistic project, to develop skills and their portfolio of work.

Fab Lab Limerick will cover the traveling costs of one artist/creative per project and their accommodation during the celebration of the bootcamp, as well as materials, training & use of all Fab Lab Limerick equipment.
