CADUS Debate! Making in Times of COVID

Debate visits Brazil! The makerspace Casa Criatura in Olinda produced thousands of pieces of PPE (personal protective equipment) by mixing open, globally designed products with local practices, and donating it to local indigenous health authorities, Afro-Brazilian traditional communities and public hospitals. The makerspace also developed an open-source aerosol box with physicists and teachers from reference hospitals in the region, igniting a community of makers and healthcare professionals around it. And most importantly, the demunis, the ordinary citizens with community obligations, received support, too—the overarching question accompanying all these activities is how communities can better care for themselves during pandemics.
