Thanks to your generosity, we have made the MADE. Every goal we set up in this Kickstarter has been fulfilled entirely thanks to your donations. We have been open for three months now, and are offering regular classes, events, and starting next week, exhibit hours.
In case you hadn't seen our schedule lately, it's on the front page of our site: http://www.themade.org wherein you might notice we're opening from 2 to 9 on Tuesdays starting next week. The MADE will be open for general admission for these hours, and the day culminates in Fight Club at 6 PM.
We'll be adding more open hours soon, once we intake our first wave of interns from the local colleges. They're coming back to school in a week or so, and we're ready to put them to work. If you can call helping out at the videogame museum work.
We're also planning on opening co-working hours for local game developers on Thursday, but we'll update you on that in two weeks, when the schedules of everyone involved become less viscous.
Our classes are a raging success, thus far, and we have new kids showing up every week. Soon, we'll have to start splitting classes up due to size. We need more teachers!
And in case you hadn't heard, we inherited 20 years worth of GamePro magazine's equipment archives last month. It was a huge undertaking to save everything, and we're now cataloging and sorting through the 100+ boxes of equipment and relics.
Your donations will sustain the MADE through March, 2012. That's just 3 months away. We now need your help again to fund the next 6 months of the MADE. Spread the word, and let everyone know they can donate to us on our Webpage, or in person. We accept corporate donations and grants, as well, so if you can point us towards some lucrative opportunities therein, please inform us.
We also need your help to make this Museum into all that it can become. If you've got an event or group you think could use the MADE for its projects, or if you want to teach classes, speak, or generally help out, please come down to one of our weekly Wednesday meetings. They start at 7PM.
