Community Conversations: Maker Spaces

May 13, 2014 @ 7:00 pm

How can we encourage creative, entrepreneurial people in our community and attract more? Makerspaces are a popular answer, energizing communities around the nation, but what are they and how might they help the Monadnock region?

maker space surveyThese questions will be the topic of discussion at the latest Community Conversations forum Tuesday, May 13 at Bass Hall in downtown Peterborough at 7 p.m. Community Conversation is a monthly forum presented by the Monadnock Center for History and Culture and the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript.

We will hear the stories of three different types of Makerspaces and discuss: What is a Makerspace? What impacts can it have on its community? What does it require to start one? What keeps it going? Those in attendance are encouraged to participate in the conversation, to pose questions and to offer their own perspectives. Attendees and all interested community members will be encouraged to participate in a survey to discover which type of Makerspace would be most appealing and how much residents might use it.

Panelists include Adam Shrey, Makeit Labs, Nashua, Bryan Field, Conant High School and Erin Sweeney, The Home Press and NH Institute of Art. The program is free and open to all.
