Peterborough talk on makerspaces, creative spaces planned
Founders of three types of makerspaces — Adam Shrey of Makeit Labs in Nashua, Conant High School teacher Bryan Field and Erin Sweeney from the Home Press and N.H. Institute of Art — will relate their experiences at the forum, said organizer Gordon Peery.
There are different ways to structure a makerspace, but many run on memberships. Entrepreneurs, manufacturers and artists can join a level of membership that allows them a certain amount of time each month in a shared space in which art and industrial tools are shared. Not only does it benefit a creative individual or startup businesses, but it creates a space where these creative people can socialize, often leading to collaboration.
The movement is only about five years old, she said, and is part of the millenium generation’s do-it-yourself movement.
Dietsch said they are expecting a large turnout for the event, and participants will be asked to take a survey after the discussion to ask people what types of tools they would want to use if there were a makerspace in the community. Tools can range from 3D printers and laser cutters to video and visual arts equipment.
