What do you like to make?

Everything. I think there's great value in knowing how to do many things.

What about a maker space interests you?

Shared resources are the way to go. Beyond being able to make cool stuff and gain access to tools and space - this movement marks a resistance to the way we've been thinking for the past 50 years (isolated, everyone owning a full set of everything even though they use it once a year). Entities like makerspaces and car and bike share programs I expect will have major impact on what we're able to accomplish as a society. Being able to work with your hands is a really empowering thing, and it's a shame that we've lost sight of that value as a country over the past several decades.

Please let us know of any ways you'd like to help!

My last job was as a producer of public art events for a nonprofit arts organization. In addition to making my own work I was able to dabble in networking, curating, workshopping, PR, fundraising, and grant writing. I'd love to do anything I can to help the Foundery grow.
