Beyond the Makerspace
Makerspaces are popping up all around the world. These spaces have become lightning rods for creative people to find each other, collaborate, share, learn and inspire each other.
That focus would cause us to miss a great opportunity. It's time for maker culture to move beyond the walls of the makerspace. It's time for makerspaces to grow horizontally and become streams of economic development.
We are bringing the energy, innovation, and Do-It-Yourself culture of the Maker Movement to the city at large.
We take the idiom “it takes a village” to heart. The enemy of a great idea is not theft; it's obscurity. For a good idea to become a great business, it must be shared in a way that lowers the barrier to adoption and promotes improvement.
Collective voice, collective energy.
As a community, members of Makervillage will have a collective voice -- and the ability to collectively decide how to use it.
