Kzoo Makers is the result of the Kalamazoo Innovation Initiative Inc. The Kalamazoo Innovation Initiative was a regular meetup group of local artists, crafters, engineers, makers, and thinkers who banded together to provide tools and resources to build what is known as Kzoo Makers today.
Today we have a 9,000-square-foot “makerspace,” a light industrial space in two connected buildings that is intended to “support people making the things they want to make, or creating the things they want to create.”
Stacy manages e-mail communications, photography and facilitates meetings, social media and other important functions for the space.
