Developing Dreams is very excited about its involvement in the Brighton Mini Maker Faire 7-8 September 2013. We will help promote the biggest celebration of arts, crafts, science and technology in the South East which is in its third year running. We will also help organise a mini conference, running alongside the main event, with inspiring talks by local and world-renowned makers.
If you have a great project, skill or interactive installation you would like to exhibit, then hurry! The call to makers is open until 7th June.
Last year’s event was so popular with more than 7,000 visitors coming through the door that the organisers decided to extend the Maker Faire over two days this year and add a second day full of workshops.

About Maker Faire
Maker Faire was created by O’Reilly Media’s Make Magazine in 2006 to “celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself mindset.” Since then, there have been regular events across the US and in Newcastle, UK.
