Join YouFab Kick Off Events across different FabCafe locations: Calling Kyoto, Bangkok and Taipei creators!

The YouFab Global Creative Awards is the brainchild of FabCafe, a global creator’s cafe network founded by Loftwork Inc. Through creative workshops and events at its comfortable spaces in 10 locations around the world, FabCafe has created spaces where individuals may share their ideas and projects and connect with unique creators. The YouFab Global Creative Awards were launched in 2012 to showcase the creations from each of the 10 locations around the world.

YouFab, which is being held for the 8th consecutive year this year, recognizes and celebrates creative works and inventions that stem from a powerful collaboration between digital and physical fabrication. It is a category free award, open to creators from all backgrounds all around the world, regardless of age and nationality.
