Community is at the heart of The Maker Series, so it felt like a positive step to become a Community Interest Company. Below are three ways we hope to engage with our community in North Devon. We hope to connect with North Devon youth so that we can learn from their passions and in turn, they may see a new way of pursuing their dreams and goals. The Maker Series Films have already been shown in schools and have proved to be an engaging way to introduce students to traditional and not so traditional skills. By working with Local Creative Spaces we hope to develop a range of platforms and local viewing hubs, which will enable us to engage with the local community through showcasing the wonderful artisan talents of local artists. The project aims to connect local business with creative talent, to strengthen a positive investment cycle in North Devon, and produce a union between modern business and artist. We are looking for locally trading businesses that would like to invest in The North Devon Makers Series.
