Memphis Makers Festival

I am here today at the Memphis Makers’ Festival, located infront of City Hall. The Mayor just spoke about how to help Makers in Memphis be able to grow their businesses.

Leading up to this festival, I had the honor of helping develop a survey that is geared to help Makers talk about what they need as local resources. If you are a Memphis Maker you can find the Survey at madebyproject.org
