Introducing the . . .
Part interactive mini-classroom, part think tank, part play space, part studio, part museum, part gallery and ALL PARTS LIBRARY – the Collaboratory is a dynamic participatory learning experience for people of all ages and interests in our community. Collaboratory programming topics will rotate monthly and also provide a space to occasionally host larger installations that tour other libraries and museums.
The Collaboratory is thrilled to welcome Maina Handmaker to kick off this new interactive space today.
Maina is a farmer and artist passionate about place. She is manager of The Brunswick Foodshed Project, an effort to revitalize two hundred-year-old freight shed barns into a year-round farmers market and community gathering place for Brunswick.
A 2013 Presenter at TEDxDirigo’s GENERATE talks, Maina will share her thoughts on what it is like to prepare for and participate in this unique public speaking experience; we will view her talk together and she will catch us up on what’s happening with the FoodShed Project. You can read more about Maina in the current issue of Bowdoin magazine, beginning on page 17.
Come see what's happening in the Collaboratory this month, and what we have planned for the months ahead!
