We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men. ~Herman Melville
Community: what does it mean to you, your business, your career, your craft?
In today’s economy, community is necessary for both survival and success.
We’re more successful when we share knowledge, resources and information than by going it alone. Partnerships are important, and humans crave interconnectivity and sharing. By connecting with our peers and seeking collaboration, we create new opportunities for growth and learning.
The fourth issues of the Mohawk Maker Quarterly and the Mohawk Craft Cooperative focus on the importance of community, recognizing that partnerships are essential to furthering the interests of craftspeople.
Some of the community makers profiled in Mohawk Maker Quarterly No. 04 include,
Blurb, Inc., 826 National, SF Center for the Book, TED Fellows, Brooklyn Boulders, ADX, La Cocina, West Coast Craft Fair, Heritage Bicycles, Artists’ Book Cooperative, Virtue Cider, Make Smith Leather Co., and Paper Chase Press.
