Kingsport’s Creative Community has been quietly but diligently at work, planning, plotting and preparing for a new meeting and making space.

The Inventor Center – a hub for blending of 21st century modern tools, traditional arts and cutting edge entrepreneurial resources, is under construction and the public is invited for a Sneak Peek.

The Sneak Peek will begin at 3:00 PM with welcome by Heath Guinn and remarks by Mayor John Clark at 3:15 PM. Take a look at the renovations, talk with makers, enjoy snacks and see a few demonstrations. The Inventor Center Sneak Peek is at 118 Shelby Street and an opening date is expected mid-November.

Inventor Center will be a place to learn, innovate and create with membership opportunities and a la carte workshops and classes. More information on equipment, memberships and classes will be available at the Sneak Peek.

Also making an appearance at the event is Downtown Kingsport Association’s mobile parklet. The mobile parklet will be moved throughout Kingsport with its first stop being at Chef’s Pizza.
