Boston Makers’ Summer Learning Series

Boston Makers presents a Summer Learning Series, four summer events to help you learn more about makerspaces and the maker movement!

Boston Makers ( http://bostonmakers.org ) serves a diverse community of adults, teens, and children for Jamaica Plain and surrounding neighborhoods in Boston, Massachusetts by providing a safe, affordable and collaborative environment, access to mentors, peers, workshops, classes, tools and other resources that support the making of things that meld art, technology and culture in new ways.

This summer we’ve organized a “Summer Learning Series” to help more people in Boston learn about maker spaces and the maker movement, including:

• Thursday, June 25th at 7 PM: Screening of “Maker” documentary ( http://makerthemovie.com ) at Hyde Square Task Force ( http://www.hydesquare.org ) at 361 Centre Street in Jamaica Plain

• Thursday, July 9th at 7:00 PM: Field Trip to Danger!Awesome ( http://dangerawesome.co ) at 10 Prospect Street in Cambridge, MA for a tour and etching activity (regularly $15). 6:30 departure from Jamaica Plain if you need a ride.

• Thursday, July 23th at 8:00 PM: Field Trip to Artisan’s Asylum ( http://artisansasylum.com ) at 10 Tyler Street in Somerville for a tour and social hour. 7:30 departure from Jamaica Plain if you need a ride.

• Saturday, August 8th at 2:00 PM: Fab11 Conference ( http://www.fab11.org ) at the Reggie Lewis Center at Roxbury Crossing.

We are raising $1,000 to cover the costs for the screening, transportation for the field trips, and some food and drink in order to open up the world of makers to many people in and near Jamaica Plain. We want to make this series available and affordable for all.

If you donate $100, you will secure your seat at the screening and transportation for the field trips, but any and all amounts are welcome!

Get out of the house, get inspired, and learn more about the maker movement!
