About this Event

Please join us for the Creat’R Lab Maker Meetup series. The Maker Meetup will help bring together UCR community members from across the disciplines to break barriers and build connections between UCR makers. This meetup is hosted by the UCR Library Creat’R Lab and facilitated by Alvaro Alvarez, Innovative Media Librarian, and Ray Gonzalez, Maker Services Coordinator.

Each meeting will begin with either a guest speaker or a workshop/demo to help spark our collective creativity and innovation. The remaining time will be dedicated to questions, and the sharing of ideas and projects through informal conversations and show and tell.

Any UCR community member with any level of experience in creating and making is welcome to attend. This will be a great opportunity to meet new people, learn something new, and explore endless possibilities through exposure to new tools and approaches to making.

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” -Maya Angelou
