Artist Matt Hope came up with the idea of the Breakerspace, a space to break apart ideas and then build them back up. This is counter to the current overloaded concept of the MAKERSPACE, a constant creation and making of projects.

Breakerspace01 STL birthed both the Fabricatorz Foundation, ONG, and hosted a slew of events, including ATMSTL. Here is a recap of Breakerspace01 STL.

If you want to do your own Breakerspace, read below, and go public by breaking things faster and better than we did :) This is your project too.
