Creating Space for Community Innovation!

The Creation Nation maker space is made up of over 6000 sq. feet of shared community workspace from woodworking to bike maintenance, sewing and 3D printing shops. It is located in the heart of downtown Brandon (440 Rosser Avenue). The goal of Creation Nation is to bring together the community of craftspeople, artists, innovators, and makers who have the passion to build and create with materials such as wood, metal, plastics, textile, or electronics.

Creation Nation is primarily membership-based with publicly accessible workshops and classes that run throughout the month.

To date, we have received equipment/cash contributions from: Assiniboine Community College, City of Brandon, Cooperators Insurance, Summus, Healthy Brandon, Aurora Project, Province of Manitoba and Mood Disorder of Manitoba. Community support has also been seen from numerous other community agencies and stakeholders from city council members to the library. We currently have large woodshop tools (table saw, band saw, drill press, planer etc.), 3D printers, vinyl printers, heat press, sewing machines, bike repair stations, small cnc router machine, various computers, electronic equipment and a large laser cutter.

We are looking for sponsorships to help further develop the space and equipment. We are in need of cash sponsorships for electrical upgrades, countertops, storage, lumber, small building tools/supplies, various equipment and even specific expertise.

Please contact makers@bnrc.ca with any questions.
