This is the official mission statement, as it appears on the charter for the organization.
MAKE NASHVILLE is an organization formed by makers chartered to nurture, support, and advocate for local and regional maker groups and initiatives. This includes: helping form new groups; holding regular meetings; educating the public, education, businesses, and government about the benefits of Maker endeavors; hosting and facilitating workshops, events, and performances; and any other activities that will support the maker community and enrich the lives as many people as possible.
We provide to Makers and their groups a common set of physical, planning, communication, and event resources, including the Make Nashville Makerspace. We coordinate the annual Nashville Mini Maker Faire as well as providing support for individual maker events, workshops, and maker spaces.
