How to get involved
Why is the community so important to The North Devon Maker Series?
The North Devon Maker Series Hopes to connect these Makers, Movers and Shapers with the North Devon community so that their stories are shared as well as their skill and their clever ways of being able to not just live in North Devon but thrive in North Devon whilst making a living from their passion.

This project started through my passion of filming but as the project developed I saw the power of capturing Makers within photography. Photography is a great tool in engaging an audience within matters of seconds whereas film takes more time to tell a story. Both have their importance and therefore the North Devon Maker Series invites guest photographers to work alongside me to capture snapshots of the Maker’s skill. If you would like to become a guest photographer please get in contact with your portfolio.
North Devon Youth
To create aspiration, inspiration and connection to those who are living and breathing their truth. The Maker Series hopes 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. If you work with youth and feel that The North Devon Maker Series would be of interest please do get in contact.
The North Devon Makers Series are looking for Creative Spaces in North Devon. 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. If you are interested in showcasing The North Devon Makers Series please get in contact.
