Maker Faire Vienna 2017

Maker Faire Vienna 2017 takes place on May, 20th and 21st 2017 from 10:00 – 18:00 at METAStadt.

The Maker Faire is a family-friendly festival focusing on crafting, constructing, inventing, experimenting, learning, recycling, inspiring, and, above all, having fun.

„Touching and trying“ will be to the fore. Each Maker Faire offers many interesting hands-on projects complemented by exciting lectures and workshops.

Thus, the Maker Faire is all in one: a showcase, a community venue, and a knowledge platform. Great emphasis is put especially on education. In a creative and playful way, the children’s and young students’ enthusiasm for science, technology, and the handling of materials and tools will be aroused.

However, it is not just about technical and scientific projects. A Maker Faire is a place for all creative people.

The Maker Movement comes in many shapes and sizes: Insights into Europe’s Maker Scene

The MAKE-IT project studies how 10 different maker initiatives use “collective awareness platforms” – a range of digital services and applications to enhance many forms of awareness. We want to understand how the makers organize themselves, collaborate together and how they create value. Both societal value and value enabling the maker initiatives themselves to be sustainable.

On December 1st, we will present some of our ‘hot off the press’ findings and discuss together what the implications are. We also want to collect input, identify new trends and hot topics. So expect the workshop to be interactive; we want your input!

Anyone interested in the Maker Movement is welcome: makers, DIY fans, researchers, communicators, students, etc. The workshop is free of charge.
