A 501(c)3 organization serving the heart of South Central Utah

Envision Escalante is pleased to announce the creation of the Escalante Makerspace, to be open to the public in 2019. What is a makerspace?  A makerspace – sometimes called a hackerspace – is a place where community members gather to share resources and knowledge – to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials – or just hang out in an innovative environment.

Why Escalante?  Small rural towns often have untapped resources in the form of community members who possess specific areas of knowledge and skill. Escalante is no exception. From the oldest pioneer families to recent transplants, the knowledge base here is outstanding.

The Escalante Makerspace will offer a library, computer/office/meeting space, a lecture room, and various equipment labs.

If you would like to be a part of the new Escalante Makerspace, or have questions, please contact Susan Nelson at sas@xmission.com.
