The New York City Development Corporation just announced on June 24, 2013 that MakerSpace has been selected to operate Staten Island’s first business incubator, and already, three days later, MakerSpace has announced its first event!
In their email self-introduction, Staten Island MakerSpace writes:
Thank you to friends and community partners who helped write letters of support, gave advice, donated time, energy, and materials to help get us off the ground. We are very lucky that the New York City Economic Development Corporation chose Staten Island MakerSpace to be the new small business incubator for Staten Island. With their help, and yours, this project is now possible.
Our first free public event will be held this Saturday, June 29, at 7 pm.
As part of Staten Island Art’s Summerfest, we will be hosting a screening of the short video, Protium. “An exploration into improvisation, using multiple cameras and improv actors to create multiple story lines that will intersect. The outcome will be a linear story.” Produced by Backslash Bomb Productions.
So please stop by and see what we’re up to.
Here’s the official press release by the New York City Economic Develoment Corporation.
