We launched the #WhyIMake video campaign to create a platform for makers to tell their own stories, serving both as role models and inspiration for others. Short videos showcase stories from prominent makers and invite others to share their own #WhyIMake stories on various social channels.


Our newest #WhyIMake video features Rebecca Anders, an Oakland, California-based artist and maker whose works of metal and mixed media sculpture focus on fascinating elements of human society and the natural world. Previous episodes include Girls Garage Founder, Emily Pilloton, NASA astronaut Don Pettit, master maker Adam Savage, co-host and executive producer of MythBusters, Atari founder Nolan Bushnell and his family, as well as actor, author and woodworker Nick Offerman.
