We are a collective of creative, geeky, artistic, innovative, fun and welcoming people who love to make things and have a great time doing it. Make Nashville is a member-led organization that was founded in 2012 and became a registered federal 501c3 nonprofit in 2015. Our Mission is to provide the community, training, tools, and opportunity for everyone to experience the transformative experience of making. We want to help more people make, and to help makers make more.
We’ve been putting on the Nashville Mini Maker Faire for the last four years, sharing STEAM education and our passion for making with as many as 6,000 people. This year, the Faire will be held at the Adventure Science Center on September 17th and will feature Bot Battles, PowerWheels Racing, and Drone Racing along with dozens of maker exhibits, workshops, demonstrations, and performances.
Our latest news is that after years of planning, fundraising, and the efforts of dozens of volunteers we have opened Nashville’s first all-ages non-profit makerspace! This over 9,500 square foot facility shared with two nonprofit partners enables us to host workshops, builds, events, and provide members with the space and equipment to create some truly amazing things. We expect to see inspiring art installations, innovative inventions, incredible feats of science and technology, market-changing entrepreneurial prototypes, skills-strenthening projects, crazy and fun maker builds, and awesome feats of education in the space. We hope you will join us.
