The Maker Festival is a fair of invention, creativity and ingenuity that put ‘makers’ in the spotlight. The term comes from the United States, where Maker Fairs (invented by the publishers of Make Magazine) have been a well-known concept since 2006. All over the world you can find independent and community-driven (mini) Maker Fairs.
Maker Festivals put the makers in the spotlight: inventors, do-it-yourself-ers, craftsmen, scientists, artists, companies, educational institutes and trendsetters. Maker Festivals are not fairs with information stands. That is what makes them so special. Maker Festivals stimulate the sharing of knowledge, innovation and a positive attitude: the world can be improved, problems can be solved and we can make changes happen.
At Maker Festival Twente the makers are showing their creations and how much fun creativity, innovation, technology, research, textile, construction, food and sustainability is. Visitors are invited to discover, experience and roll up their sleeves. You can work with 3D printers and laser cutters, demolish and hack devices, weld, solder or mold, exchange or repair devices and clothing, learn about crafts or combine them with new materials and techniques.
