i3Detroit Vision Doc Ideas
Vision Statement: Creating novel, useful, and interesting things to influence our world is a foundational human undertaking that many don't even realize they are missing. i3Detroit introduces people of all walks of life to the joys of making, provides a community around learning and skill sharing, and furnishes the tools to build anything imaginable.
Introduction to Making
- How do we introduce people to making?
- What does a "successful" introduction look like?
- What does our community provide?
- How does it achieve the goal of helping people go from "never used a screwdriver" to making their lives better/the world more interesting by completing satisfying projects?
- Tools for a wide range of activities to support all types of interests
- Space for groups to meet and network
