Generator, the Burlington-based makerspace, is moving out of their present location at the Memorial Auditorium to a warehouse in Burlington’s South End, according to VPR. The move is necessitated by repairs to the auditorium, but will give them more space to operate.
If all goes well, Generator will move into an 8,000-square-foot space that’ll increase its footprint by nearly a third. The studios for makers will be larger and there will be more of them.
The new home, it turns out, is across a parking lot from Champlain College’s Maker Lab. Generator needs to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars by September to build out the new space, says executive director Lars Hasselblad-Torres.
“We’ve got our work cut out for us,” Hasselblad-Torres says. “It is a fair amount of money to raise, but I think we’re going to hit it. We’ve got a lot of results to show.”
