The West embraced the DIY movement about 60 years ago, when first hardware stores had appeared. The Soviet Union also had popular modelling clubs and workshops where members crafted what they could not buy. Now DIY is not just a hobby, but an actual subculture. We have decided to invite DIY enthusiasts and discuss with them Russia’s DIY communities and the way they interact with their surroundings.
? Who are Russian makers? How do they get into DIY?
? Where do makers hang out in the city?
? How does the DIY community impact the city? Does the city impact makers?
? How is the movement developing?
