Ready, Set, GO!
We have started our Maker Callout so please let us know about the great work you have been creating, even if it’s not done yet, just get in touch! Tell everyone and anyone that Montreal Mini Maker Faire will indeed be happening this very summer, Montreal style.
Let’s show the world what we got and impress a few folks who have not yet heard of Maker culture. There will be much to see and learn when we get this going, can’t wait!
Montreal’s first ever Mini Maker Faire on 25th-26th August 2012 was a huge success. You could find wizards of technology, artists and maker enthusiasts, discover 3D printers, robotics and Arduino creations but also participate in workshops and interactive games. Watch Videos from the event, check out the Makers who were there and start thinking up ideas for next year.
The Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of “maker” culture. It’s been called everything from a “digital quilting bee”, to “futuristic crafts fair”, to “The Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth”. Maker Faires started in California half a decade ago and are spreading across the globe, as far as Cairo and Hong Kong.
We’re here for community building, inspiration, skill sharing and a weekend expo where all ages are welcome; the only requirements are curiosity and enthusiasm. Stay in touch with Makers from this year’s event and help us plan a Bigger and Better event for June 2014! firstname.lastname@example.org
