With this interview, I explore Cindy Kohtala’s ideas on the maker movement and sustainability, based on her doctoral dissertation completed at Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland. I was particularly curious to know how maker culture might act as a tool for cultural change. My inquiry was guided by these questions: how might community workshops for digital fabrication build a sense of community? how inclusive can the spaces be? and, how does peer learning function as a form of pedagogy in these spaces?
