MAKE Santa Fe enters its second phase, and it’s second location AND we’ve got a great central location, working with fantastic partners!
We’re locating in midtown Santa Fe with Zane Fisher and Extraordinary Structures.
“We’ve seen the maker movement have a true economic impact in communities around the country. We know a makerspace is one of the key ingredients in fostering a positive entrepreneurial environment, manifesting creative business opportunities, and keeping pace with developing technologies,” says Mayor Javier M. Gonzales. “Last spring, I met with local business leaders for a strategy session and I pledged to have a community makerspace in Santa Fe within a year. We found the right people to make that happen, the right deliverables to ask for, and now we’re making it real.”
