Brightmoor hub: Celebrating the first anniversary of maker space

Five years ago, it was just an idea—an empty building. Over the course of those last five years, that idea transformed into a hub for artists and makers in Detroit’s Brightmoor neighborhood.

More than 150 community members gathered to celebrate a year of “making” at the Brightmoor Maker Space last week. The Detroit Community Schools and the University of Michigan’s Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design hosted the open house to celebrate its first academic year in operation.

The Brightmoor Maker Space is a 3,200-square-foot building on the campus of Detroit Community Schools that is resourced to help students learn, share knowledge and build entrepreneurial skills around the act of making.
