Our mission is to put tools and technology in the hands of the community and to make starting a creative business accessible to everyone. Our vision is to inspire and support making as a positive force that enriches the community. Our dream is to help foster the spark, that creative force in people so that they can then project it and put their ideas into the world.
Maker District is a 32,000 sq.ft. makerspace, STEAM space and small business incubator coming to Grapevine, TX this year.
We will offer the community:
2 STEAM Spaces Wood Shop Metal Shop Digital Fabrication Digital Media Electronics/Robotics Sewing/Textiles Recording Studio Video/Photography 92 Micro-Studios & Private Offices Classrooms/Meeting Spaces Computer Lab Galley Maker Made Shop Equipment Training Trade Training Classes Community Events 24 hours a day/365 days a year access
Maker District is first and foremost a makerspace and small business incubator, open to the entire creative community. As a community makerspace, our goal is to serve the traditional hobbyist, tinkerer, maker, inventor, dreamer, and entrepreneur - but also to reach far beyond that to help a greater part of our community that needs a space like this.
Our Founder’s vision for this organization and facility includes targeted programming for kids/at-risk youth, veterans, men/women/families in crisis, and the homeless. She believes fully, that equipped with the right tools, training, guidance and structure, having access to a facility like ours will offer a life changing opportunity, giving these individuals the chance to create their dreams.
