Day 2: Makers Quarter
Since 2013, the neighborhood has evolved from a collection of storage warehouses and parking lots into a burgeoning district defined day to day by the businesses and residents within. Its become a place for artists and innovators. Unique to the evolution of this part of East Village in Downtown San Diego, the community was invited to help shape its’ future, through an extensive series of activations and experiments, known as tactical urbanism.
Makers Quarter is a gathering place of San Diego’s Artists and Innovators, and the heart of our city’s Maker Movement. The Maker Spirit has always been part of the fabric of East Village, from the original home of Jerome’s Furniture almost a century ago, to the brewers at 10 Barrel Brewing, to the modern day Makers who perfect and teach their crafts in the Moniker Warehouse today.
