Brighton Mini Maker Faire 2015 is looking for makers

(Camilla) #1

The Brighton Mini Maker Faire is looking for makers for its event on Saturday 5th September in and around the Corn Exchange in the centre of Brighton.

Applications close: Monday 8th June

Find the application and more info here:

There will be over 100 makers showing off projects and things they’ve made, testing new kits and products, running workshops, and both teaching and learning from around 3,000 visitors.

They are particularly looking for exhibits that are interactive, that highlight the process of making things and where visitors can learn something they can try themselves. Makers can exhibit projects – either finished or in progress – or run hands-on workshops.

Types of applications:

Maker – you want to share a project in the main event. You might be a maker, designer, musician, craftsperson, scientist, artist, engineer, educator, student, hobbyist, performer or hacker.

Workshop leader – you want to run a series of short timetabled or drop-in workshops on Saturday. This is ideal for sharing entry-level skills, e.g. soldering an LED badge, or simple craftwork.

Sponsor or commercial stall – if you’re representing a business or want to sell products as your main focus, you can apply as a commercial stall. If you just want to sell a few pieces on the side, apply as a maker. If you’re not sure, apply as whatever seems best, and they will contact you to discuss it.
