We’re excited to announce the first ever Ottawa Mini Maker Faire, which will be held on November 6th and 7th in Ottawa, ON. They’ve put out a call for makers, so be sure to get signed up and mark your calenders for the Faire!

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.

There can’t be a Maker Faire without Makers, so please submit your idea for a table or project or demo and become an exhibitor by Monday, October 18th 2010.
