Make-Hack-Learn-Live will be a Makerspace, first and foremost, but it will have an alter ego.
Within its common practice, it’ll be a vibrant and welcoming space for tinkerers, makers, and engineers, and educators, scientists, and artists. It’ll be a collaborative setting where people meet to share ideas and impart knowledge, create new projects, and help others in bringing their ideas to life. Workshops and lively activities will delight, challenge, and educate, stimulating friendly rivalry among members and makerspaces, and showcasing projects at local schools, libraries, and events. This will be a like-minded community, inspiring new ideas, creative ventures, innovative concepts, and new products in a super fun and creative atmosphere.
Make-Hack-Learn-Live will be a member-based program, a diverse and collaborative space, and a world of possibilities at your fingertips, where all ages and abilities can come together to teach, learn, create, and design, affirming hands-on production, critical making, and constructionism.
MASH, a Maker Action Support Hub, will be a project-based, onsite design and fabrication shop emphasizing open-source sustainable technology and community self-sufficiency. Projects will be fueled by individuals, families, and communities working together to achieve a human economy. A support system for at-risk members of the community and homeless individuals, founded on reciprocal partnership and altruism, and community engagement and participation.
We stand at the precipice of economic madness with more people struggling and falling into poverty every day. A Makerspace is a tool, and with your support, we can be an instrument of positive change. It’s within your grasp to reach out and get invested. Projects will be a community partnership to seed stronger and supportive neighbourhoods, and push back poverty at the community level where it festers and thrives.
