Okay, kids, it’s that time again — time to dust off the steam-powered Theremin, grease the chains on your triple-decker mutant bicycle, and re-balance the spinning disks of death on your combat robot — it’s time for Maker Faire auditions!

Move over PT Barnum, the REAL geek sideshow is coming to town!

Calling All Makers – Auditions for Maker Faire 2009 to be held on Sunday, March 8

In preparation for this year’s event, a team from MAKE magazine (www.makezine.com) will be scheduling 15-minute appointments at The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, March 8th, from noon to 4pm, to preview, and meet with, potential makers, crafters and inventors from the area.

“We’re looking for anyone who has something fun to share, something they’ve made with their hands,” explains Dale Dougherty, Publisher & Editor of MAKE magazine. “It can be practical or impractical–it could be something simple like a creative costume or maybe some handmade jewelry. Or it could be something wild like a bike with ten wheels, or a dog-powered lawn mower. Whatever it is, the more creative and imaginative, the better!”

Audition Details:
When: Sunday, March 8th, 2009 (noon – 4pm)
Where: The Tech Museum of Innovation 201 South Market Street San Jose, CA 95113-2008 (408) 795.6225
Admission: FREE
Contact for Auditions and to schedule a 15-minute appointment: Sherry Huss, (707) 827-7074 or [email protected]
