Makerspace Expo at Northern NJ Community Foundation’s Connect the Dots

Do you enjoy creating art, designs, inventions, woodwork, crafts, or other products?  Come to the Northern New Jersey Community Foundation’s ArtsBergen next Connect the Dots event, Makerspace Expo on Monday, November 5. The hands-on networking event takes place at Bergen Makerspace in the Bergen County Technical Schools Adult & Continuing Education Building, located at 190 Hackensack Avenue in Hackensack, New Jersey from 6:00 p.m.to 8:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Good-will donations are welcome.

Learn about the Maker Movement by experiencing a makerspace firsthand. Educators Dennis Montone and Mark Tronicke lead the interactive gathering.  Join them and five other makers in a demonstration of the tools and equipment, projects and uses of laser cut, 3D printed art, woodturning, and upcycled electronics sculpture. This open space provides a collaborative workplace.  Furthermore, this space brings together a community of like-minded creatives, designers, artists, and inventors.  They explore and share ideas and develop finished products. Connect with artists, municipal and community leaders, and business owners living or working in Bergen County.  Also, meet others with similar interests.

            “The ethos of makerspaces and the maker movement aligns perfectly with the Northern New Jersey Community Foundation’s mission.  NNJCF brings people together to share best practices, ideas, inspiration, and talent to build stronger, more productive and vibrant communities. We encourage artists to come on November 5 to experience an amazing resource here in Bergen County,” said Danielle De Laurentis, Associate Director, Northern New Jersey Community Foundation.
