There’s a New CreatorSpace in Town!
What’s it all about?
The Loveland CreatorSpace is going to be a cooperative space for engineers, artists, musicians and tinkerers of all sorts to come together and … CREATE!
Like a traditional “hackerspace”, the primary objective of LCS will be to provide a community-driven work shop that offers its members access to tools, machinery and classes to help promote creative engineering in Loveland and Northern Colorado. A comprehensive collection of tools combined with an assortment of community-owned light-manufacturing equipment will provide engineers, artists and musicians with the resources they would need to complete almost any project.
What makes LCS unique is its collaboration with Loveland’s arts community. Gallery and performance space will be offered for artists to present their craft, and the CreatorSpace will allow artists to experiment with new arts by offering opportunities and equipment to paint, play music, and wax creative. By offering space for painting, musical performance, and many other artistic ventures, LCS will provide a great space for artists to share their work and engage the community.
A key aspect of LCS will be the focus on education and exposing Northern Colorado’s youth to a group of skilled and talented role models where they can learn skills ranging from art and music, to electronics, programming and manufacturing. Whether it’s learning to work with tools, learning to play an instrument, or simply learn about a new subject at an LCS sponsored Tech Talk, we want kids to get excited and involved!
Great! So….where is this place!?
The Loveland CreatorSpace does not have a home… but we are looking at prospective spaces in or near Downtown Loveland. In the meantime, you may find our meetings hosted by such local businesses as RoadNarrows Robotics, The Armory, Loveland Aleworks, and the E3 Learning CO at Ferguson High School. We are very excited to start gathering momentum in the Loveland community!
By golly! I want to help out! Where do I go!?
If you have suggestions for LCS features (such as equipment and tools you’d like to see), events (such as classes and get-togethers you’d like to attend), or just want to join the cause, please follow us at http://www.meetup.com/Loveland-CO-Makerspace/ to find us at our next meeting!
