We’re so excited to be chatting with five dynamic leaders of community-based makerspaces about the ins-and-outs and ups-and-down of starting a makerspace in their communities. Joining us are Nina Barbuto & Jess Gold (Assemble), Jean Kaneko (The Exploratory/Maker Guilds), Tara Tiger Brown (LA Makerspace) and Erica Compton (Idaho Commission for Libraries). The Google Hangout will be broadcast live on Wed, July 9, Noon PST / 3pm EST. Tune in here, and if you have any questions for our guests, use the Q&A option during the hangout, or submit them in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org (with the subject line: ‘I have a wonderful question’). Thanks!
