In 2012 there will be close to 60 Mini Maker Faires around the globe. Mini Maker Faires are organized by individuals, hackerspaces and maker groups, schools, and larger institutions like science museums. They are diverse in scope, resources and origin, but all share an interest in connecting and celebrating makers.
At World Maker Faire New York next weekend, over twenty such Mini Maker Faire producers will be meeting up, telling stories, and learning about new tools.
Join us for one or more Albuquerque Open Maker Meetings to be held at Quelab every Thursday from 6:30-8:30pm.
These meetings will be a quick intro to the Make movement and answering your Maker Faire questions, open to Makers, Volunteers and the general public. We the volunteers and makers will be painting signs and doing other fun ‘maker’ projects that will help to create the Faire. As we get closer to the Faire additional days may be added if necessary for large project items as we get closer to the faire.
