This presentation was given in July of 2014 at the Fab10 conference in Barcelona. It showcases a selection of the initial findings from our global makerspaces survey conducted in May-June of 2014.
The goal of the study was to identify key patterns for success when operating a makerspace and uncover new ways to integrate creative spaces in their cities.
The focus of this talk was on presenting the data and diving deeper into the tactics around community building. More specifically on how integrating with peripheral communities such as arts, tech, and design can help accelerate the success of a makerspace.
Additional analysis and insights will follow in the coming weeks. Follow @TheMakersNation on Twitter for updates.
