Makerspaces are becoming vital to college campuses and workplaces alike. Accessible makerspaces create opportunity for students and creative professionals to bring their visions to reality. With more and more companies and schools prioritizing the maker mindset, new questions arise about the use of these spaces and who is using them.

Our Winter UNITE panel will feature ideas around the following questions:

  • Are makerspaces becoming more prominent and in what industries?
  • How do we ensure makerspaces are inclusive to all concentrations and skill levels?
  • Who finds these makerspaces intimidating and how are organizations addressing that?

Our diverse panel discussion is hosted by EYP and is set to take place on Thursday, February 22nd. Hear from a panel of experts and enjoy a night of drinks, light apps, and networking. Bring your questions and delve into the maker nation with us!

 

Doors open at 6:30pm; Discussion begins at 7:00pm.

Moderator: Leila Kamal, Vice President of Design & Expertise, EYP

Panelist:  Athena Moore, Autodesk

Panelist:  Eric Lanoue, Program Manager, MADE@MassChallenge

UNITE is a quarterly event series showcasing the intersection of design and everything else. Each UNITE event brings together four thought leaders around a complex topic like entrepreneurship, healthcare, data visualization, and local manufacturing – and only one of the panelists is a designer. During the event all four panelists bring a unique perspective to the conversation and interact with the audience to explore the topic. Following each discussion are drinks, networking, music, and fun. UNITE events are hosted and sponsored by various generous businesses of the Greater Boston area. If you are interested in hosting one of these events, please check out our host page here for more information.
