> in order to sell what they make or exchange it, use it themselves or
> support their community. Many artists, designers, makers, hackers are
> drawing from these informal structures directly or indirectly. We will
> have an exhibition opening with the results of this project "the nenek
> project" on march 10th. So we are now in the middle of busy
> preparations to get everything done.
