“Maker” is a feature documentary that demonstrates many concepts that will be incorporated in Wilmington’s Creative District. The film looks into the maker movement in America reforming the economy with a new wave of Do-It-Yourself and Do-It-Together. The “Maker Movement,” sometimes called the “Third Industrial Revolution,” subverts traditional manufacturing by building on innovative concepts such as open source, local manufacturing, crowd funding, and digital fabrication. Breaking the hobbyist movement stereotype, “Maker” delves deep into this ecosystem of design and manufacturing in the Internet era. The film explores the ideas, tools, and personalities that are driving the Maker Movement – and returns with a timely snapshot of one of the transforming influences of the current age.

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. Each event starts 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. Wilmington Renaissance Corporation is a privately funded, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.

Barrel of Makers is a non-profit organization working to create Delaware’s first makerspace. A makerspace is a place where people of different skill levels come together to share tools and knowledge. Once there, they will be able to build and showcase projects ranging from metal working to knitting and everything in between. We are working to make a space like this in the New Castle County in order to provide meaningful connections and make passion sustainable.
