Makers and Small-Scale Manufacturing

Downtown Santa Monica, Inc. (DTSM) is on a mission to bring creative, local makers to our beachside community. We are looking for innovative and ambitious artisans and small-scale manufacturers to be a part of this new adventure. Our goal is to collaborate with makers like you to create a supportive environment, help you find the space you need to thrive, and to amplify your work by becoming a destination for unique and local goods.


DTSM partnered with Recast City to conduct interviews with local and regional makers and stakeholders in order to determine opportunities and strategies to bring makers into the district. Read the final report from Recast City here.

DTSM intends to make diversity, equity, and inclusion a key part of this work because we believe these standards create a more vibrant and fair community.
