What is a Maker?

NOUN
pron. /meɪkə/

“A person that is self-sufficient, passionately driven, fully-capable and highly motivated.”

Someone that can make things happen for themselves.”

Once upon a time in an old textile factory…

Makers of Barcelona (MOB), and that was inspired by the belief that a place could be created where people would interact, work, live and consume differently. In 2011 the old textile factory on carrer Bailén was transformed into two giant open spaces equipped with more than 100 desks, workshop and meeting rooms, an event venue, an exhibition gallery, a maker space and a café. MOB Bailen was born: Barcelona’s very first coworking space.

Meet the Makers

We don’t know where we’re going from here, but we promise it won’t be boring.

We envision a world where everyone is empowered to innovate, creativity is celebrated and technology fosters equality. We promote diversity and inclusion by setting boundaries and clear actions against offensives related to gender, gender identity and ex-pression, sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, neuro(a) typicality, physical appearance, body size, age, race, national origin, immigration status, or religion.
