But the Maker Movement isn’t all arts and crafts. It’s sometimes referred to as the “Third Industrial Revolution,” and more often than not, involves homemade tech inventions.
Here in Delaware, Wilmington Renaissance Corporation will hold the fourth installment of its Creative Chats next week to present and discuss its vision for a Creative District in Wilmington. That plan involves work and living spaces for Makers. Then, in partnership with Barrel of Makers, participants will watch the WilmFilm Festival premiere of “ ‘Maker:’ A Documentary on the Maker Movement.”
The two organizations, both non-profits, are among Delaware’s frontrunner Maker supporters. The Wilmington Renaissance Corporation works to stimulate the city’s economy, attract new residents and make the city more attractive. Barrel of Makers is devoted to creating Delaware’s first “makerspace,” which is a place where people of varying skill levels share tools and knowledge.
