Our Mission: To promote and support makerspaces in Indiana by providing:
- Collaboration and Knowledge sharing
- Formation and Operations Consulting
We are a 501c(3) non-profit organization who seeks to strengthen Indiana's maker movement by providing a collaboration point for Makerspaces throughout Indiana. We also work to gather and share best practices so that all Makerspaces have the opportunity to thrive in their communities. We drive data collection and colaborate on analysis to gain knowledge about how the maker movement strengthens educational, economic, place making, and social goals within our local community.
Running a makerspace is not an easy task, but you are not alone! If you are thinking about starting a space, CONTACT US. If you are running in to difficulties, CONTACT US! We can consult with your organization to develop a plan of action, or put you in contact with other experts who can assist.
Another act of collaboration that we want to develop is a tool network. Do you have a tool that needs a home or duplicates of tools? Do you know of a really good sale going on or a liquidation happening? CONTACT US! Until we get a better solution, you can also post to our Facebook page. This will get the word out. We have already had success with a makerspace trading a kitchen sink for a 3D printer.
