Are you an artist, maker or entrepreneur? Interested in a creative community where you can live and practice your craft?
Wilmington Renaissance Corporation invites you to a Creative Chat: A Vision for a Creative District in Wilmington with Special Guest: Evan Malone, Ph.D., President, NextFab
Learn about the vision for a Creative District in Wilmington that will establish a creative community with living and work spaces for artists and entrepreneurs in the City of Wilmington.
A fabrication lab is a key component of the Creative District Vision Plan. Dr. Malone, President of NextFab in Philadelphia (www.nextfab.com), will share NextFab’s model of a collective workspace and idea incubator that brings industrious creatives together. Founded in 2009, this for-profit workshop’s membership base has access to two million dollars’ worth of machinery and top-notch instructors to make everything from laser cut felt jewelry to medical monitoring devices.
Light fare and drinks provided. Cash bar.
Wilmington Renaissance Corporation’s Creative Chat is an informal, interactive series held six times a year at the Chris White Gallery to update our community about the vision plan for a Creative District. Events start with a networking opportunity followed by a presentation by an expert in the creative or maker field. Creative Chats are free and open to the public.
