Call for Mini Makers 2017

May 11, 2017
The Midcoast Mini Maker Faire has a place for everything from hands-on to high tech.

Camden — The Midcoast Mini Maker Faire committee is seeking makers for the 2017 event, to be held Saturday, Sept. 9, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Camden Amphitheatre. The Faire is hosted and produced by staff and volunteers of the Camden Public Library.

The Midcoast Mini Maker Faire is a gathering of not only innovators and tinkerers, but also artists, do-it-yourselfers, craftspeople and performers — in short, any and all “makers” of all ages. Over the past several years, the Midcoast Mini Maker Faire has hosted homemade cars, power-assisted bicycles, underwater robots, Arduinos, a solar-powered merry-go-round, Lego robots, cyanotypes, giant bubbles and a full-scale camera obscura.

The Midcoast Mini Maker Faire is geared towards visitors of all ages and is a family-friendly event. The fair offers non-commercial makers a free exhibit space with a table, chairs, power if needed and Wi-Fi. There will also be special networking events exclusively for makers.

Everyone is encouraged to think of themselves as a maker and to come for the show. Applications are available online at midcoastmakerfaire.com. Camden Public Library is excited to present this festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness intended to inspire the current and future generations of makers and entrepreneurs. For more information, contact Cayla Miller at cmiller@librarycamden.org or call the library at 236-3440.
