WHAT WE DO

Everyone is a Maker and has the capacity to create. We create experiences, curate access to tools, materials, classes, and workshops, and host events in the greater Denver Area that introduce individuals to a wide variety of skills and activities.  We empower makers to explore their craft, own their creativity and, if they wish, use their skills to give back to their local community.

OUR IMPACT

— Through our programming and events, we have helped create environments and experiences for both youth and adults to explore their creativity and build skills for the future.

— During 2020, we organized 120+ volunteers over 5000+ volunteer hours to make 20,000+ articles of PPE. We awarded micro-grants to 13 makers who have learned a new skill or completed a new project.

— We create volunteer opportunities for makers who want to give back and, in 2020, launched Volunteer Maker Corps for makers 16 and older. We aim to host 4 community volunteer opportunities per year that align with hands-on activities that give back to the community.

— We created a multi-maker marketplace website where makers, who may have been displaced from their jobs, can sell their items online.

— We host events and activities while the adults and youth who have attended our events learned that, they, too, are capable of building a meaningful life by owning their creativity and making it uniquely theirs.
