We met Chris almost a year ago at a coworking meetup at MAKESHOP...And we're so thankful we did! 🙌 He helped us start-up our coworking space and has been working alongside us since. Chris has the best podcast recommendations, brings us fancy pastries, sends us postcards from his travels, brings in his adorable pup to say hi, shares greens from his garden, and is generally the best. If ya see him around town, say HI. 👋😎⠀ #makeshop #coworking

Meet 6th grader, creative entrepreneur Draven! 😎He wanted to create a space where kids going through tough times can share art as a means of coping. So he built a website to connect kids with art...and he WON 2nd PLACE at the Kids’ Business Expo! We can’t wait to see where these new skills take him! Way to go Draven and all the kids that bravely brought their ideas to share with the world! (Notice Kayla, a graduate of our summer makeshop program, and founder of @sweetdaycookies304 on the left!). This is the future of Appalachia. This is how we transition our economy. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 #kidentrepreneur #kidswhocode [📷 by @rafaelbarker] #makeshopappalachia

Y’all know Maram? 🌿 If you’ve been by MESH Charleston recently you may have seen her prototyping a new concrete planter. She came up with this idea to design a planter, build the mold, pour the concrete, add color tiles to compliment the building facade, and hand pick the greenery to plant. And we LOVE IT. We also love that she spends her time designing green spaces in our coworking space. Her green thumb is always at work at MAKESHOP coworkingm Maram brings her beautiful energy everyday and we’re so thankful to know her. 💚—- Follow her @maramoushmoush 🌱 #makeshopappalachia #makeshopcoworking #coworking #studiolife #lookingatappalachia #cwv #bettertogether #collectivedesign

Thankful for the latest member of our team, Deondray!! A recent Capital High-School grad and local west-sider, he joined the MESH team this fall to help run our MAKESHOP design & coding workshops. He is a dreamer, a writer, a thinker, and most recently, has been dabbling in a bit of code. He doesn't want to admit it yet, but he's an html natural. He has this magic way of inspiring kids; we can tell they look up to him. He takes life day by day, and always with a smile. We're inspired by him, and hope to keep him on board as long as the universe allows. If you see him, tell him he's awesome for us, kay? #makeshopappalachia #youthrising #youthleadership #pocleaders #lookingatappalachia

A collaboration between @artplaceamerica and @ufcam identified five critical public health issues in America: collective trauma, racism, social isolation and exclusion, mental health, and chronic disease. And do you know what they say is helping address these issues? Art and culture work. And cross sector collaboration. That means, people you wouldn't expect working together, working together, inclusive of artists. They even published a report on it, that you can read, for free, on the @artplaceamerica website. While these issues are not cute, the book is. Yes, okay we're biased we designed it :) . . do yourself a favor and school up on what some amazing people in the US are doing to tranform Public health in their communities. What can you do in yours ? . . #creativeplacemaking #artplaceamerica #publichealth #culturebearers #artintervention #artsandculture #creatinghealthycommunities #artsinpublichealth

Repost from our founder: Consultations with emerging creative entreprenuers, ages 9-15, of MAKESHOP this week keeping life meaningful. No matter where the world is taking me, West Virginia is #1 in my heart, and video technology is an amazing tool. Xavier, age 10, bottom left, said the number one question he wants to address in his neighborhood on the west side of Charleston is, why do we have so many abandoned houses just fallin apart, and so many people livin on the street without homes? His dream is to take over the houses, fix them up, fill them with furniture, and invite people in. He and I did a 1-on-1 to talk about how we can help people see his vision, so he's starting with art, mural ideas, and @adobe illustrator mockups. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to see whatever is next for his thoughtful, focused mind to bring to life. . . Truth is, we don't have all the answers alone, but when we can work together and share tools, anything can happen. #makeshopappalachia — @meganpage

More trees, less concrete. More bikes less cars. More equitable solutions, less isolation. More idea sharing, more collaboration, more working together. It's been an honor this fall working across the pond with European and US cities from Lyon and Strasbourg, France to Padova, Italy, to San Diego, Birmingham, and Boston, to document how cities are collaborating to be more #sustainable #resilient and #equitable places tackling #climatechange head on. Happy to be working with the EU International Urban Cooperative @iuc_eu program pilot to be their multimedia storytellers in North America. Follow the @euintheus to learn more about the program and get your hands on #sustainablecity tips. So, What is your city doing to address this climate crisis? . . #sustainablecities #sdgs #climateactionnow .
