Hello Everyone!

Ottawa just got a little more awesome. We will be hosting a Mini Maker Faire
in conjunction with the Electric Fields Festival in November. We are working
to get the Maker info page up on Artengine's site but for now if you have
any questions or know of any interesting groups to reach out to please
forward or let us know!

Mini Maker Faire
12 – 6PM
November 6th and 7th, 2010
2 Daly Ave.

*“Considering that some of the greatest leaps forward in American
technological history have been scrappy homebrews (Apple Computer was a
literal garage startup), it’s really kind of exciting to think that, given
its explosive growth, the Maker Faire might well help along an invention or
two that’s truly important.” – Advertising Age*

The innovation laced through the capital region is impressive, and this
first ever Mini-Maker Faire is a chance to connect creative people from all
over our region in a celebration of the DIY spirit. A Mini-Maker Faire
brings together families and individuals who celebrate Arts, Crafts,
Engineering, Food, Music, Sustainability, and Science and those who embrace
the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) spirit. At Maker Faire, the focus is on the process
of making – not just the finished product.

The real story here is the curiosity, vibrancy, and passion of the Makers
themselves, the people who comprise the rapidly emerging DIY category.
Scientists, homemakers, students, automotive enthusiasts, software
developers, musicians, crafters of all stripes: individuals and communities
of people drawn together by a common delight in the magic of tinkering,
hacking, creating, and reusing materials and technologies.

Are you a Maker? Reserve your spot now!
