As part of Phoenix Urban Design Week 2015 activities I attended the local premiere of "Makers" at Filmbar in downtown Phoenix. Preceded by a short bike ride, and followed by a short discussion about the local maker community, this was a great way to meet some of the local makers. I can highly recommend this movie, particularly to anyone new to the scene, who is interested in how this started, and where this maker "thing" is headed. I was particularly impressed with "Sylvia's Super Awesome Maker Show" and I'm glad to see she is just as enthusiastic as she was when I met here a few years ago when I visited EMSL
MAKERS + DINNER + TOUR
Its not too late to sign up for another of the Design Week events, and this Maker event is a curated tour of four of the local makerspace in Phoenix. Its starts, with dinner, at the Pickle House, a former factory that's being transformed into a 200-job incubator, and even includes a teaser for the new @azsciencecenter makerspace being launched later this year.
