Organisation name: Makerversity
Grant amount: £5,000
Quote from Makeversity:
“The funding has enabled us to get the makerversity project off the ground by providing the funds we needed to purchase the big items of equipment. They have also been fantastic in connecting us into the wider movement that Each One Teach One is building and we are proud to be part of the collective.”
Quote from EOTO:
“The Makerversity project provides us with an exciting opportunity to allow young people to gain really tangible, hands on skills with a wide range of people. The fact that the project will also be situated in such an iconic building as Somerset House provides access to a space that would usually be ‘not for us’ to many young people”
Makerversity is a shared making and learning space in the heart of London, providing an affordable and accessible space for learning, experimentation, production and enterprise. Makerversity has a core ambition to inspire young people through digital making and design and support them to explore alternative learning and career paths in making and manufacture through our apprenticeship programme, workshops and employment opportunities.
