The New Orleans Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of the maker community in New Orleans and the surrounding region. The inaugural event in 2014 was attended by over 1,000 people, and our 2015 event hosted 2,300 attendees. As the event grows, our mission is to continue to seek out and showcase the culture of art, design, and Do-It-Yourself that has made New Orleans one of America’s most unique cities.
The New Orleans Mini Maker Faire is fortunate to have the Bricolage Academy as its sponsor and non-profit beneficiary. Bricolage is a New Orleans public charter school whose mission is to advance educational equity and create innovators who change the world. Any proceeds from the New Orleans Mini Maker Faire will benefit Bricolage Academy’s operations during their initial growth stage.
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
The original Maker Faire event was heldin San Mateo, CA and in 2012 celebrated its seventh annual show with some 800 makers and 110,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagshipevent, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), and Tokyo are the home of “featured” Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in New Orleans.
