Decatur Makers had their GRAND OPENING party on May 6. Lots of folks came to celebrate the work they’ve already been doing in and around Decatur. As befits a group of creative, geeky makers, their ribbon cutting was accomplished via a Rube Goldberg-style contraption. It took a few tries but makers can identify with the persistence required to make cool things! Congratulations to our friends at Decatur Makers for creating a wonderful environment for their community.
Lots of great things are happening in our maker community.
Maven Makers in Savannah won a local film competition called Soul Proprietors (http://soulprops.com/). It matches up local small businesses that have a community oriented focus with film crews and then gives them 5 days to make a 7 minute long documentary. The film crews are competing for a $5000 prize and the small businesses are competing for the non-profit they support. Here’s their winning entry:
Congratulations for making an excellent film about making!
