Curiosum Makerspace - part of the global Maker movement
Curiosum Makerspace is a place to learn, share, and create and also a part of the global Maker movement.
Manufacturing is being digitized and democratized. Digitally controlled machines are getting cheaper, the open source software to control the machines is getting better and more people are learning to use these technologies. All this means that we can talk about a kind of revolution - where more and more people have knowledge and access to manufacturing machines and thereby have the opportunity to create things themselves.
Two important components that make this possible are meeting places and sharing culture. Meeting places are important for connecting people with the same interests, it can be a physical place such as Curiosum Makerspace or a digital arena on the internet. The Internet makes it possible to connect people all over the globe with odd, unusual or special interests in different forums where you can learn from each other, together.
All these physical and digital places are permeated by the sharing culture that the Maker movement is made up of. We live in an exciting time where you can only dream about what will be invented and created and it can become a reality tomorrow…
What exactly would you like to create?
