A Celebration of Creativity and Invention
Saturday September 5th Corn Exchange, Brighton
Brighton Mini Maker Faire, the festival of making, creativity and invention takes place every year in the Corn Exchange in Brighton. We bring together the most inspired, talented and ambitious makers and 3,000 excited visitors to share the fun of making – to learn, watch and get their hands dirty. There are robots, crafting, musical instruments, cosplay, electronics, weaving and more.
About Maker Faire
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors, and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds. Maker Faire’s mission is to entertain, inform, connect and inspire these thousands of Makers and aspiring Makers.
The inaugural Maker Faire was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2011 celebrated its sixth annual Bay Area event with some 100,000 people in attendance. As Maker Faire has grown in popularity and relevance, additional flagship faires were launched in 2010 in Detroit and New York City. Community-driven, independently produced Mini Maker Faire events inspired by Maker Faire are now being produced around the United States and the world, including Brighton Mini Maker Faire.
Activities for all ages include arts & crafts, robots and engineering, wood and metalwork, electronics, science, tech, music and more amazing do-it-yourself creation.
Highlights from previous Brighton Mini Maker Faires
Over 10,000 people have piled into the Dome for Brighton Mini Maker Faire since 2011, to witness the mind-boggling home-made creations of the best inventors, crafters, hackers and DIY-ers from across the UK – and they got involved: making, experimenting, playing, learning and interacting.
We’ll be there on Saturday – looking forward to it!
