It’s difficult to build a quality Makers Space, Maker’s Place, Hackerspace, or Makerspace. Primarily because without having a place you don’t really have a membership, and without a membership you can’t ask what equipment should be purchased for the place. It’s like the chicken and the egg problem. Which comes first?

The solution is to poll people for their opinion, prior to building the Maker’s Space. Then, opening is a moment of confidence, rather than uncertainty.

To this end, we have created a short survey, and a long questionnaire. Ideally, we would like everyone to complete both. Evidence shows that only few people even try to complete our short survey, and only the dedicated who have been guided into it will attempt the longer questionnaire.

We humbly ask – can you help us, regardless of who you are, or where you are, take a moment to answer some questions. We don’t need your details, and all replies are anonymous, unless you deliberately choose otherwise.

Go for it. Hit About in the menu above, and show us you care.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
