    With the emergence of different types of makerspaces in Korea, maker culture is currently spreading all over the country. In Gwangju, there are mobile makerspaces and special makerspaces that offer maker education programs focusing on food and art. The Chonnam Tribune gives a brief introduction about them aiming to spread the maker culture so that local residents who are interested in making something can easily find a makerspace.

Mobile Makerspace
    Mandulcha (Make Car) is a moving makerspace full of digital and craft fabrication facilities such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and sewing machines. This Tribune reporter visited the mobile makerspace at the Gwangju Lifelong Learning Fair held on October 11. At the fair, there was a making experience program using 3D pens, mugs and badge press machines as well the above technical equipment. Kim Hyung-soo who is a student at Gwangju University and someone who attended the making program said, “This is my first making experience. It was amazing that I made a mug by using a mug press machine. I would like to participate in any other activities at the Make Car again.”
    The mobile makerspace of Manduldat (Make Dot) Inc. moves across local areas and expands making opportunities with making kits and maker education programs. According to an operator of the makerspace, its equipment changes depending on the type of program. Sim Eun-ji, CEO of Make Dot, mentioned that this year, the company has conducted visiting maker education programs in local schools, libraries and startup institutions. They are now planning to make their mobile makerspace available to more people for example by using moving libraries.

Art and Food Makerspaces
    Asia Culture Center Makerspace is a venue for artists, activists and organizations to share information, to nurture creative exchange and to connect experts with ordinary people. It provides artistic makers with technical education programs to expand their creative opportunities. A hall inside the makerspace functions as a place for artists to interact with each other. Naver Partner Square in Gwangju mainly supports local food businesses and food creators through specialized programs and facilities needed for them. Its studios are open to business owners and creators to make food content or take pictures for the promotion. It also has a space for artists called “Atelier” where local artists make their artwork and run a one-day art class every month to share their artistic ideas with local residents.
