Mission Statement

Support the creative process and personal growth of individuals by providing a space, tools, and knowledge where individuals can learn and expand their skills, invent, and build new products in a collaborative and safe environment.

Description

We focus on developing and fostering a creative community of hands-on individuals and providing them with the tools they need to succeed. The location will have equipment for welding, metalworking, woodworking, plastic working, couture, electronics, programming and many other skill sets. There will be regular classes over these areas that will train people to safely work with this equipment and how it can be used to realize their ideas.

Hackerspace LA is part of the Maker Movement and revolution of millions of people across the world who are taking big risks to start their own small business dedicated to creating and sell self-made products. In today’s world of mass-produced cheap items, technology has made it easier for single individuals to create and distribute quality products that are custom made without having middlemen like manufactures or big corporations. This change in local manufacturing will continue to have an effect on the economy for years to come and will see many improvements in the local economy.
