Clear Creek Makerspace is a place to come create, learn and connect. In 2019, Localworks and the City of Wheat Ridge partnered to complete a preliminary feasibility analysis for an ArtSpace project. ArtSpace is an amazing organization that builds and operates affordable housing for artists. To guide this analysis, a group of local creators and partners was formed and the analysis was undertaken and completed. As a result, we learned a lot about creators and makers in Wheat Ridge and that there was an appetite for a place to come create, learn and connect.
