If you’re a crafty person in the area, here’s a cool new opportunity for you from the CU Community Fab Lab:

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Champaign County Community (CCC) Maker-in-Residence Program, an initiative designed to bridge and enhance the creative capabilities of our local maker communities. This program represents a collaborative partnership among the Champaign-Urbana Community Fab Lab, The Urbana Free Library, the Urbana Arts and Culture Program, Grainger IDEA Lab, and the Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center, aiming to foster a vibrant ecosystem of creativity, learning, and community engagement.

There is a stipend of $1,500 as well a materials budget. The selected artist will design and complete a project, and host at least one public workshop.

Applications to become the new Maker-in-Residence are due by March 24th. Find the application and get more info here.
