New York Makers, the online marketplace and magazine where every product has a New York story, has launched a digital New York Makers Resource Center℠ available to all makers online at NewYorkMakers.com. Through the Resource Center, New York Makers is committed to building and maintaining a communications hub offering educational and professional resources, opportunities and support to the statewide maker community.
Local makers comprise the backbone of towns and cities across the state; their energy and ingenuity help fuel the economy and sustainable community. New York Makers supports the maker movement through projects and programs like the New York Makers Resource Center℠, a unique and powerful “go-to” platform. Silda Wall Spitzer, Co-Founder of New York Makers, stated, “In this time of unprecedented challenge and change for business, especially for independent makers, we hope this Resource Center will provide a valuable repository and source of connection for our maker community to emerge stronger than ever.”New York Makers Resource Center℠ gathers in one place, COVID-19 Relief Resources, “Wellness for Makers” columns, maker stories, video interviews, webinars, community forum, and an events section (coming soon). New York Makers will be adding new features and content to this first phase version as the Resource Center becomes established, including a maker materials network. In addition, New York Makers will continue to work closely with partner organizations throughout the state.
