We had a great turnout for the MIXXER mixer on Sunday. Nearly 100 people total stopped by to share ideas about what MIXXER should be. We heard so many great ideas, and the excitement in people’s voices was undeniable. We are off to a great start. We are currently processing the data we collected to determine the area with the most interest so we can cultivate those channels, and continue to seek input to further develop a comprehensive program for MIXXER.
What we have learned so far:
- Top 3 categories of interest from survey – Woodworking, Metal Working, Glass based & Textile based (tie).
- Over 50% of those surveyed want to utilize services and space at MIXXER.
- Over 25% of those surveyed want to volunteer at MIXXER.
- 20% of those surveyed want to be a mentor at MIXXER.
We will continue to collect input from the community, but we now have a place to start developing programming, and we have identified people that are interested in doing the work to push this project to the next level. I’ll keep you posted on developments. It’s going to be exciting – Stay tuned.
