Maker Faire 2009 Auditions on Sunday, March 8th

Maker Faire
The Maker Faire is coming around again this year and this weekend is your chance to have your project at Maker Faire 2009.

The fourth annual Maker Faire’s theme is Re-Make America and it “will showcase individual creativity and grassroots innovation in the largest festival devoted to DIY culture and technology in the country.” Personally, I’m a big fan and have been to the previous three, sometimes going both days because there is just so much to see.

So what are they looking for?

“We’re looking for anyone who has something fun to share, something they’ve made with their hands,” explains Dale Dougherty, Publisher & Editor of MAKE magazine. “It can be practical or impractical–it could be something simple like a creative costume or maybe some handmade jewelry. Or it could be something wild like a bike with ten wheels, or a dog-powered lawn mower. Whatever it is, the more creative and imaginative, the better!”
