OMSI is excited and proud to announce the inaugural Portland Mini Maker Faire at OMSI September 15 & 16. While it’s only a short eight weeks away we couldn’t wait any longer to show and celebrate the fabulous maker community we have here in Portland and throughout the Pacific Northwest. Plus, as us Oregonians know, the weather won’t hold out much longer before we’re back in rainy season so why not end the summer right?!
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.
And that’s where you, the makers, come in! Not only do we want to tell you about the event, but we want you to be a part of it. We’re looking for anyone who is embracing the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.
The first step to participating in the Portland Mini Maker Faire is to submit an entry that tells us about yourself and your project. Entries can be submitted from individuals as well as from groups, such as hobbyist clubs and schools. We particularly encourage exhibits that are interactive and that highlight the process of making things. APPLY TO BE A MAKER!
We hope you’ll share your amazing work!
