BYO Print has called the Fishtown / Kensington Neighborhood it’s home for over 4 years now. While the neighborhood had already begun establishing itself as an Arts Corridor, we have seen some extraordinary strides recently with new businesses, restaurants, studios and art spaces popping up all over the place. The creative ingenuity is inspiring. Whether you live here, work here, or enjoy hanging out here in Fishtown, you should definitely come and “Meet The Makers” this First Friday.

The Meet Your Maker Project, created by The Art Dept, will feature makers and creative businesses in the Fishtown / Kensington area. It is a multi-faceted project that includes a photography exhibition (Opening Friday, December 6th at The Art Dept), interviews with the local “creators”, and a catalog that will act as a guide to all the wonderful things happening in the creative community of Fishtown.

How Lovely! BYO Print is so lucky to be a part of this awesome community, and lucky to have been photographed and interviewed for the project.
