Maker Faire heroes i3Detroit are hosting a Maker Mixer at their space next month, to give everyone who was too wrapped up in running their events a chance to relax and socialize. This should be a great way to catch up with everyone in the area and get involved in the DIY scene in Detroit:
Detroit’s first Maker Faire was a smashing success by all accounts, bringing together hundreds of exhibiting makers, scores of awesome creations, and tens of thousands of onlookers and makers-to-be. It was educational, entertaining, and most of all, busy.
So busy, in fact, that many makers spent the whole weekend in their booths, with little opportunity to meet each other. And while the spectacle was great for short-term attention, the synergy is where long-term gains stand to be made. To that end, i3Detroit will host an event we’re calling the Maker Mixer. On September 4th, anyone who’s interested in DIY (and especially anyone who exhibited at Maker Faire) is encouraged to come down to Ferndale and spend the afternoon at i3Detroit’s shop.
