Cruces Creatives is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) makerspace in Doña Ana County, New Mexico, that works to improve education, protect the environment, foster economic development, promote the arts, build social connections, and advance science and technology by connecting people with the tools, training, and community to make practically anything. Thanks to the efforts of more than 200 community volunteers and supporters, who have donated thousands of hours of time and more than $240,000 in cash, property, and in-kind contributions, Cruces Creatives offers community access to a 12,400 ft2 facility with tools and training in areas including a full woodshop, CNC machines, a milling machine, 3D printers, computer workstations, a textile lab, an audiovisual lab, electronics and circuitry stations, vinyl cutters, a bicycle repair shop, and more. As of September 15, 2018, more than 450 community members have participated in Cruces Creatives programs.

Mission: Acquire and make available to the public all tools and software needed for local production, local repairs, and rapid prototyping; educate community members in the safe and effective use of such tools and software; employ recycled and recovered resources as raw materials for the makerspace; and integrate tools, space, and human skills for projects that promote economic development, protect the environment, and enhance quality of life.

Sustainability Goals: Use recycled plastics and glass as feed materials for 3D printers; use waste biomass and surplus construction materials as resources in the makerspace; and host classes and workshops on product design, product repair, and sustainable architecture/construction.
