Ignition Northwest

About Ignition Northwest

Ignition Northwest fuels community through participatory arts, events, and education.  It is with great pride that we sponsor the second annual Seattle Mini Maker Faire.

Ignition Northwest formed in 2005 to promote self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, and participation, among other values. Our two annual art festivals, SeaCompression and Critical Massive, raise money for grants that fund interactive art projects. As a community driven arts organization started by a bunch of artists that is entirely self supported, Ignition Northwest represents the very heart of the DIY movement.

About Maker Faire:

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 Chicago Northside.

Maker Faire is organized by MAKE magazine and supported by O'Reilly Media.

About MAKE Magazine:

MAKE is the first magazine devoted entirely to Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technology projects. MAKE unites, inspires, informs, and entertains a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements, and garages. MAKE celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will. Subscribe here.

Besides the magazine and the faire, MAKE is:

  • a vital online stream of news and projects, blog.makezine.com;
  • a retail outlet for kits and books, the Maker Shed;
  • a steady stream of fun and instruction via our YouTube channel;
  • Make: Projects, a library of projects with step-by-step instructions
  • a book publishing imprint with best-in-category titles on introductions to electronics, Raspberry Pi, Arduino and more.
