Event Details

A workshop for current and future MIni Maker Faire Producers.

This is a collaborative meeting, and an opportunity to pool ideas and share findings on making  aMaker Faire.  The goal is to collect new content for version 2 of the Maker Faire Playbook.

Note that breakout session leaders are only responsible for getting the conversation started.  They have expressed points of view on these subjects, and will start the session with some of those thoughts, but the majority of session time will be conversations.  This is a workshop!
