Fabrica is a research workshop, new school and studio. It pursues research through making, producing groundbreaking projects in collaboration with the world’s best creative talents. Their desire is to positively impact upon social and cultural change. Fabrica pursues its own projects as well as working for others, from commercial clients to governments, NGOs and the cultural sector, developing tangible research, expertly communicated.
Fabrica was created by Benetton in 1994, and projects have won Webbies, Academy Awards, Cannes Grand Prix, Art Directors Club and D&AD awards and more besides. If you are 25 or under, you can apply for a scholarship to join their research community. If you are interested in collaborating, they’d be happy to talk.
Fabrica is organised into studios, each exploring a particular theme or area of interest. A studio is a space, a team, and a way of exploring a subject. Studios contain small, medium and large projects, running fast and slow across most forms of output. Each studio is a self-contained, multidisciplinary creative team, capable of making many things and shifting fluidly depending on need. Each studio is run by a studio lead. Although it is possible to move between studios, via different projects or projects shared between studios, you should apply to the studio that you are interested in. You will also get to pursue personal projects. Most studios last 12-18 months, and the current Fabrica studios are described below. Find out more about Fabrica’s projects via their Facebook page. Choose one studio on the web page to apply to, and then they will ask you for personal details – you should be 25 or under, for instance – and portfolio.
