The Maker Movement… What’s Next?

by Kip Ellis, Toni Loiacano

The Maker experience represents a profound change in how things are being created today. The formal boundaries and divisions between people of different backgrounds and skills are not only dissolved by the Creative Class, they are informed by the interaction brought about by diversity of ideas, experience, and contribution to advancement. As designers of multidisciplinary research and teaching/learning environments of all kinds and active members of an academic faculty team running an interdisciplinary, entrepreneurial maker studio, our experience helps create more idealized and appealing environments that attract, retain, and engage the Creative Class and help those who wish to learn more about this valuable paradigm. The experience of Making offers great hope for making our world a better place through innovation, and the ultimate beneficiaries of these efforts will be all of us, together.
