N2 Innovation District to hold makerspace event

The N2 Innovation District is hosting an event on Thursday, March 2, to educate the Newton and Needham community about makerspaces.

“Makerspaces: Building Communities with Technology and Art” will take place at 5:30 p.m. at the Price Center building, 27 Christina Street, Newton.

During the first part, local makers will showcase their work and answer questions. Then a panel of experts will explain how individuals can create a makerspace that unites people, and why the mix of art and technology is a necessary part of innovation.
