DCAD, NextFab launching partnership to enrich city’s Creative District


Mayor Michael Purzycki and officials from the Delaware College of Art and Design and NextFab makerspaces will celebrate the launch of a partnership between the two entities that will enhance DCAD’s programs of study, increase NextFab’s footprint on the city’s Creative District and further the redevelopment of Wilmington’s downtown. After a brief presentation, attendees will be able to view makerspace artistic and technological amenities in action and take tours of the site.

WHEN        1:30 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 17

WHERE:        NextFab, 503 N. Tatnall St., Wilmington

DETAILS:     DCAD is Delaware’s first and only independent professional art and design college. Offering the associate of fine arts degree in animation, fine arts, graphic design, illustration, interior design, and photography, the College prepares students to transfer as juniors into the bachelor of fine arts degree programs. DCAD is located at 600 N. Market St. and has served as an anchor institution in the revitalization of downtown Wilmington, Del., for 20 years. For further details, visit dcad.edu.

NextFab is a network of membership-based makerspaces that provide access to tools, technology, education, events, consulting and capital for makers of any skill level. With three locations in the mid-Atlantic region, this premier destination for makers, artisans and hardware entrepreneurs helps innovators to turn ideas into products and products into businesses. NextFab’s instructors and consultants span disciplines including engineering, arts, business and science. For further details, visit nextfab.com.

 The first phase of the partnership provides NextFab memberships to all full- and part-time DCAD faculty members so that they may use the makerspace to develop ways of integrating the latest in technology and artistic innovation into DCAD’s curricula while also furthering their own development as practicing artists. Subsequent phases will include field trips to NextFab so students may use the state‐of‐the‐art equipment, software, and instruction to complete class projects and the provision of full NextFab memberships to all degree-program students.
