MADE Residency Program - MADE STL

The MADE Residency Program is a funded membership and training program designed for underrepresented makers in the St. Louis region who need access to a makerspace. This includes black, brown, female and nonbinary makers, artists, designers, and entrepreneurs- creatives who have historically been marginalized within the maker movement.  The MADE Residency Program offers a 6-month membership and $700 stipend at MADE for training and equipment reservations in our makerspace. At the end of the program, makers will provide MADE with an artist talk, professional development opportunity for the community, pop-up shop, or something of similar value that reflects their experience at MADE and contributes to our community.

This program includes membership and funding for training and equipment usage within our space. It does not include materials or funds for materials. If you haven’t seen our makerspace, please take a tour before applying

Applications are currently closed, but will open in winter of 2021. Applications include questions about your ideas, projects, and sample images. Applicants will email MADE with a cover letter and relevant attachments (such as photos, drawings, links, ect.). You can view an example of a cover letter here. Applicants should have a clear vision of how MADE will assist with their project or goal.
