Cruces Creatives Job Shop Officially Launching!

A makerspace offers the tools, training, and community to make practically anything—including projects for hire! That’s where the Cruces Creatives Job Shop comes in.

The Job Shop--as part of Cruces Creatives’ missions to promote economic development, advance science and technology, and promote practical education in Doña Ana County--connects individuals or organizations who want a project made with members of the Cruces Creatives team who can make the project happen.

From a soft opening with pilot projects that started in November 2018, the Job Shop has already grown to a major program, with multiple projects worth over $55,000 completed so far. This work helps local organizations and individuals make their visions reality, all while enhancing the local economy, providing internship and education opportunities for a 21st century workforce, and serving as a major source of support for Cruces Creatives and all its charitable missions.

With the success of the soft-opening projects, the Job Shop is leaving the pilot phase and officially launching!
