CALL FOR MAKERS FOR 2014 SYDNEY MINI MAKER FAIRE IS NOW OPEN – CLICK HERE TO APPLY

Returning to the Powerhouse Museum for its second year as part of the big opening weekend of Sydney Design 2014, applications are now open to be part of Sydney Mini Maker Faire 2014. Over Saturday 16 to Sunday 17 August you will have the opportunity to showcase to the public the various ways you are championing the maker movement, whether through your ideas, products or new design applications and processes. 

Applications close 5pm Friday 4 July 2014. 

Maker Faire is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the world-wide Maker movement. A place where people show what they are making and share what they are learning.

Maker Faires are primarily designed to be forward-looking, showcasing Makers who are exploring new forms and new technologies. But it’s not just for the novel in technical fields; Maker Faire features innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.

Applications are open to individuals, groups, schools and other organisations, whether you’re interested in just demonstrating your invention or perhaps selling it as well! There is no application fee for the 2014 Sydney Mini Maker Faire, though each successful application will be required to pay a $200 project fee as part of their participation in the Faire. This fee includes Public Liability Insurance if required and is less if you possess your own Insurance.
