Registration for Creativation University is open! Over the next several weeks, we’ll introduce you to some of our workshop teachers and seminar speakers so you can learn what to expect from taking their live classes in Phoenix this January.
This week, meet Sidney Church!
Sidney is partnering with Michael Mayne, founder of Kin Community, to hold one of our iDiscover Chats titled, Making Their Way Home & Maker Space: What the Heck Is It? Sign up for Sidney’s seminar to learn how a maker space is relevant to your creative business, whether you or your customers do or don’t identify as makers.
Read our interview with Sidney to get to know him and more about his Creativation seminar.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Sidney Church and I’m the Electronics Zone Manager at CREATE at the Arizona Science Center.
In a few words, tell us about the education session you’re teaching at Creativation.
I’ll be giving a seminar on what the heck a maker space is and how it’s good for business.
Who and why should someone attend your session?
Anyone interested in finding out what goes on in a maker space or wondering why these spaces are starting to pop up everywhere – especially those who have never heard of a maker space before.
What are you looking forward to the most at Creativation in Phoenix?
What do you love most about your job?
My job allows me to expose people who have never even seen 3D printers or laser cutters to these technologies. For a creative person, these become fantastic tools that allow you to take your projects to the next level. I also get to see people who don’t feel like they’re creative realize that they can make things relatively easily with computer numerical controlled (CNC) equipment. It can open up a new world for some people.
What do you love most about the creative industry?
It’s an ever growing and expanding industry. This also means that more and more people want to make things, which is amazing. It’s exciting to see what new technologies become available to the home consumer that will help her or him make new and awesome things that have never been seen before.
