Everyone is a Maker!

iMakeCLT - South End Community Make Day

iMakeCLT is a family-friendly FREE event that will provide a pop-up space for neighbors from all over Charlotte to connect and create meaningful projects.  Attendees of all ages can interact with artists and makers and take part in activities like book binding, micro-farming, laser cut paper arts, stop motion animation, 3D printing, Lego robotics, and much more.  Healthy, fun refreshments will be available for purchase from the local non profit, Friendship Trays.

iMakeCLT celebrates and encourages the mind-set that everyone is a maker!  Participants can explore and use their imagination to be inspired and create.  Being able to utilize tools and technology not readily available unlocks everyone's creative potential.  There will even be a raffle to win your own cool 3D printer to take home that day (must be present to win).

iMakeCLT was inspired by a Historic South End mini placemaking grant awarded to Digi-Bridge, a local non profit dedicated to the advocacy and mission to close the digital divide in the community.  The event creates a fun urban laboratory environment to experiment for the day.  Head to iMakeCLT.com for more information!
