Supporting Community Engagement in the Maker Movement

The Ville Cooperative ( is a holistic community centre, working to empower the local community to learn, share and grow in the spirit of health, wellness, and sustainability. One of the areas in which it hopes to realise its vision is through the newly rebranded fabrication lab – Learning Lab @ The Ville.
The Villes Learning Lab, like most makerspaces and fabrication labs, is currently undersubscribed; the space is neither heavily used nor being used near its potential. As the focus of this particular project is to increase engagement in The Villes Learning Lab, rather than address a specific problem that community members are facing per se, we will take a participatory design approach, employing best practices from published work in the domains of accessible and inclusive design (actual study design will occur when project has started).
