BOSTON MAKERS JOINS CITYPOP: JP COMMUNITY
JAMAICA PLAIN’S FIRST MAKERSPACE MOVES TO EGLESTON SQUARE IN APRIL
Jamaica Plain, MA – Boston Makers announced that the nonprofit makerspace organization will be moving into CityPOP: JP at 3201 Washington Street, in Egleston Square, in April. Boston Makers will occupy the former Rainbow Foods, a 750 square foot space with expanded workstations including computers, sewing and fiber arts, and a woodshop.
Boston Makers hosts Young Makers Club, Microcontroller Monday, and Open Project Night programs at its current location in Hyde Square Task Force’s Youth Community Development Center at 361 Centre Street. Programming like this and other events will continue at CityPOP: JP.
CityPOP: JP is a new arts-centered community in Egleston Square seeking to preserve and enrich the neighborhood while the building, formerly home to Jackson Glass and a Latin grocer, is under development. Several musicians, dancers, and visual artists will occupy other spaces in the building. CityPOP: JP’s grand opening celebration will be held on Friday, April 1.
To support construction and the purchase of materials and tools for the new makerspace, Boston Makers will be launching an Indiegogo campaign at the end of this month. For details on how to donate or volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
