The Maker movement is one of inclusion, equality, and love. Love for our creative passions, love for building something, love for our future, and love for humanity. The Idea Foundry and the Franklinton Urban Empowerment Lab are deeply saddened by recent events--rallies against the very democratic principles of equality we hold dear, demonstrations of hatred, racism and other forms of bigotry, the sporting of symbols that represent some of the darkest moments of our history. We are reminded how important it is to show up and do the right thing.
We're kicking off a support program to bring Maker training--critical for the emerging economy-- to underserved and minority youth in our community who have long struggled with access to these equalizing skills.
For our inaugural fundraising event with FUEL, we're hosting a Barbeque Cook Out & Open House!
Proceeds of this event will go towards supporting tool & tech training for underserved community youth-- Buy a ticket--help send a kid to class! Your ticket gets you access to a private Maker themed event full of make-and-take projects to build alongside our talented makers and tool & tech demos from drones to VR and includes choice of BBQ, conventional grilled items like burgers & hot dogs, plenty of sides, desserts, & beverages.
