Undergraduate Thesis: Who Makes a Makerspace?


Who Makes a Makerspace? 

My honours undergraduate thesis at McGill investigated how Makerspaces are managed and governed. By interviewing organizers of eight Makerspaces in Toronto and London, Ontario, I found that these spaces are the product of fragile and complex governance networks  involving individuals, non-human actors and institutions.

London Medical Make-A-Thon

On April 1st and 2nd, 2017, I brought together a diverse group of students, professionals, healthcare providers, and people with disabilities, for a two-day Make-A-Thon focussed on creating toys for kids with disabilities. The event was hosted by Innovation Works in London Ontario, and planned in partnership with Medical Makers and UnLondon. Over the weekend, participants designed and 3D Printed a variety of innovative devices, incorporating ideas and feedback from people with disabilities who needed the devices.
