Ottawa's Mini-Maker Faire

12 – 6PM
November 6th and 7th, 2010
2 Daly Ave.

"Considering that some of the greatest leaps forward in American 
technological history have been scrappy homebrews (Apple Computer was a 
literal garage startup), it's really kind of exciting to think that, given 
its explosive growth, the Maker Faire might well help along an invention 
or two that's truly important." – Advertising Age

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.
