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.
