The Innovation Wyrkshop will seek to provide an experiential active learning environment across our makerspaces to foster community innovation, creativity, curiosity, and entrepreneurship through state-of-the-art technology and interdisciplinary collaboration.
The Innovation Wyrkshop always has and always will support equity, inclusion, diversity, respect, and equality for everyone. It's our duty to provide a safe, welcoming atmosphere where makers from all technical levels, abilities, and backgrounds can bring their unique experiences and perspectives to the innovative design process. At all levels and across all of our policies and decisions, we seek to create a creative center that champions maker values and fosters mutual respect.
Our team of passionate, curious, smart makers will aspire to deliver engaging, exciting workshops, special events, and makerspace content to you. Our makerspaces will always be welcoming, open, free, and accessible to all those who wish to use them.
It's essential that the Innovation Wyrkshop be a leader in responding to communities with disabilities for a very simple reason: we believe in the power of making, and we believe in the important impact that every maker who visit our makerspaces has. And to be a leader means addressing the needs of everybody who visits our makerspaces. If you have questions or feedback about the accessibility of any of our content, please let us know.
