Habibi.Works – an extraordinary FabLab for...
Habibi.Works is a maker space in Northern Greece near the Katsikas refugee camp. Besides a wood, metal, textile and creative studio, it also features a modernly equipped Media Lab, which hosts a 3D printer, a laser cutter, VR equipment and workstations. Additionally, there is a large community kitchen, a vegetable garden with a beehive and chicken breeding, and a library with nover 1000 books.
All of this is accessible to refugees from 4 different camps and the nearby city, but also to the Greek host population. The welcoming space creates a melting pot of cultures, skill sharing and creative expression. People from all around the world can run and participate in workshops, share and gain skills for example in coding, sewing, cooking, welding, or beekeeping.
Habibi.Works powerfully embraces diversity and cultural heritage, but also shows that we can live and create a new way towards harmony and respect.
Thanks to the TROOPERS charity program in 2019, the Soup and Socks e.V. team was able to cover several months’ costs for rent, heating, water and energy! With your support, the team is able to respond to the changing needs of the users of the space, to maintain tools and purchase new materials for small and big projects, such as the impressive DOME and the beautiful library.
