Join us on December 16th, as we screen Maker: A Documentary On The Maker Movement. This event is open and we encourage you to invite your friends and loved ones to celebrate our community. Whether this is a glimpse into new territory or a way to network with like-minded peers, this is sure to be a good time.

"Maker" is a feature documentary looking into the maker movement in America reforming the economy with a new wave of Do-It-Yourself and Do-It-Together. The “Maker Movement”, sometimes called the "Third Industrial Revolution," subverts traditional manufacturing by building on innovative concepts such as open source, local manufacturing, crowd funding, and digital fabrication. Breaking the hobbyist movement stereotype, "Maker" delves deep into this ecosystem of design and manufacturing in the Internet era. The film explores the ideas, tools, and personalities that are driving the Maker Movement – and returns with a timely snapshot of one of the transforming influences of the current age.
