Emerge Networking on Tour: Coventry MakerSpace


This month Emerge Networking is at Coventry MakerSpace – Make, Build, Learn, Hack, Create, Socialise. Based at the Koco Community Resource Centre, the Makerspace is a membership-run organisation that provides people in Coventry with the tools (and space) needed to complete projects. You can learn a new skill, try out new tools and socialise with like-minded makers.

Richard Knowles, founding Director of Makerspace, will talk about the space, its membership model and philosophy and there will be opportunities to tour the space and try out tools and resources.

Following the talks there will be plenty of time for Q & A and networking and refreshments will be available.

Emerge is an informal networking event for creative people which takes place on the 3rd Thursday of each month. It’s a chance to make new contacts and keep up to date with news and opportunities in the region. It’s managed by the Creative Enterprise team and is part funded by ERDF, Coventry University and Coventry City Council.


Where: Coventry MakerSpace, Koco Community Resource Centre, 15 Arches Industrial Estate, Coventry CV1 3JQ.
