Maker spaces give folks a place to gather, grow and learn together.  They are places where folks share tips and tools and sometimes a place where businesses get a start.  And, they are so much more than spaces, they are communities.  Here in Michigan we have an active and diverse network of maker spaces; many of which have been impressive participants at Maker Faire Detroit for the past 10 years.  Thank you to each and every maker space and most importantly to your members for being huge champions of the maker movement.  We appreciate you and recognize that you give hundreds of hours annually to make, run, and share your projects with Maker Faire Detroit attendees.  You are all awesome!
