A convivial and fun approach at the heart of the Maskbook project.
From Beijing to Nairobi, but also Quito and Paris, more than 60 workshops have already been held and have mobilized the creativity of students, employees and citizens alike, helping to raise awareness on the health-pollution-climate link.
Participating in one of our Maskbook workshops allows you to: contribute to our amazing online gallery of masked portraits, experience a pleasant convivial and federating moment, practice circular economy, explore the link between art and sustainable development and last but not least unleash your artistic, ecological and technological creative abilities!
A Maskbook workshop comprises, all that is needed to create, personalize and customize your mask using “DIY” techniques but also features numerous activities and events which can vary according to your needs and desires: photo or mask exhibits, Ipad animations, photobooth, photocall, 3D printer animation (bio-plastic), 3D Scan animation, digital creation workshops… All of these actions enrich the experience.
A “DIY” workshop can host from 10 up to 100 participants, it lasts between one to four hours and requires a large amount of recycled “ingredients”! 🙂
The creative process is based on the concept of upcycling, sewing, painting, recycling, technological innovation, DIY, etc.
The ingredients used will vary and for the most part originate from recycling circuits: fabric samples, old toys, unused “goodies”, plants, electronic and electrical equipement, waste, flowers, empty capsules, etc.
Art, creativity and a festive atmosphere are an integral part of the adventure: A Maskbook artistic exhibit, Maskbook Party (workshop including a DJ, animations…), Flash Mask (masked flash mobs), Fab Mask (masks created in a Fab Lab), Ball Mask (masked ball), these are also original ways of participting in the project.
