Saturday October 13th and Sunday October 14th
Shopify Lounge, Back Entrance
150 George Street
The rise of the maker (or is it the revival of making) is an exciting global movement. Not content with a passive relationship to technology, many people are unboxing the mystery of the tools around them. From simple craft projects to complicated interactive tools, makers are playful, curious and creative and the Mini-Maker Faire showcases some of the best projects around! On the weekend of October 13-14, Ottawa will host its second Mini Maker Faire at the new Shopify Lounge.
The Mini-Maker Faire will highlight the impressive innovation laced through the capital, and is a chance to connect creative people from all over our region in a celebration of the DIY spirit. A Mini-Maker Faire brings together families and individuals who celebrate Arts, Crafts, Engineering, Food, Music, Sustainability, and Science and those who embrace the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) spirit. At Maker Faire, the focus is on the process of making – not just the finished product.
The real story here is the curiosity, vibrancy, and passion of the Makers themselves, the people who comprise the rapidly emerging DIY category. Scientists, homemakers, students, automotive enthusiasts, software developers, musicians, crafters of all stripes: individuals and communities of people drawn together by a common delight in the magic of tinkering, hacking, creating, and reusing materials and technologies. Above all the Maker Faire encourages people of all ages to risk the frustrations and experience the joy of making stuff.
