Event Details

Are you in the process of starting or growing a makerspace near you? Join Artisan's Asylum and MAKE for an intensive one-day workshop whose goal is to lead you through the process of setting up, characterizing, and planning out the stages of developing your makerspace. Over the course of the day, we'll discuss creating a business model, wading through permitting and insurance, building community around your space, and the particular challenges of incorporating education and/or business incubation into your mission. This won't be a spectators event: be prepared to tell your story, ask questions, look at hard numbers, and make decisions about your space and the process you'll use to set it up. You may even find collaborators from an area near you that you want to work with!

All participants must fill out this survey in addition to registering for a ticket, so that we can tune the workshop to your needs:

  • Total population and population density 
  • Median household income
  • Rough age distribution
  • Average commercial rent in $/sqft/yr (easily found by searching your local commercial Craigslist listings)
  • Any existing maker, craft, vocational, or DIY-oriented events and spaces in your area
