Call for Makers

Many makers claim they have no other place to share what they do. DIY (Do-It-Yourself) is often invisible in our communities, taking place in shops, in garages and on kitchen tables — typically out of the spotlight.

Maker Faire makes visible these projects and ideas we don’t often encounter.
