Westside Makers is a community event and publication created by artist Calcagno Cullen and funded by the Center for Great Neighborhoods in Covington, KY.
Covington is a community of makers. This project aims to illuminate this trademark by hosting a “meet the makers” field day and publishing a DIY Westside Makers book. Any resident of the Westside neighborhood who identifies as a maker, including anything from knitting to fly-tying to carpentry, is invited, for one afternoon, to move their practice outdoors and to share with the community. The event will serve as the release for the accompanying book that shares submitted DIY recipes, designs, and instructions along with stories and portraits of Covington makers.
