EDC, Port Talk Makerspace in the San Juans
The Economic Development Council of San Juan County invites the public to attend a virtual discussion on the creation of a makerspace system in the islands, from noon-1 p.m., Friday, Oct. 23, in partnership with the Port of Friday Harbor.
Todd Nicholson, executive director of the Port of Friday Harbor, will join Mickey von Dassow, EDC trades coordinator, for a conversation on a potential network of local makerspaces that can support entrepreneurship, education and innovation throughout the archipelago.
Nicholson will give a short presentation and Q&A session about the Port of Friday Harbor’s plans for a new Marine Technical Center, focusing on their proposed makerspace. Following his presentation, the group can engage in a discussion, and get to know people with shared goals.
Registration is required. Due to privacy concerns, registration is limited to adults over 18. Please register at www.sanjuansedc.org/makerspacesconvo for this Zoom event.
