Sherry, Louise and Shauna will
be hosting a Maker Faire Detroit
Town Hall and Community Planning Meeting on Tuesday, March 22nd at The Detroit Public Library (Main Branch) in the the Old Fine Arts room and would like to
invite you to attend. In addition to providing updates on the event, our
goal is to continue to generate ideas, form working groups and continue to
connect with people and organizations that are interested in participating in Maker Faire Detroit.
If there are others that you know that would like to get involved, please feel free to invite them too. This event is open to the public and we would love to connect with people, groups and organizations that should be involved with Maker Faire. Feel free to spread the word and invite interested parties.
If you have participated in Maker Faire Detroit 2010, attended a Maker Faire Community Meeting in the past, want to talk to us about a group exhibit or are new and want to learn more, we will have our Maker Faire team onsite to work with you.
And, we look forward to receiving your submission to the Maker Faire Detroit "Call for Makers" which will go live on March 22nd, 2011 at www.makerfaire.com
And, please spread the word, in partnership with The Henry Ford, Maker Faire Detroit returns to Detroit July 30th and 31st, 2011.
See you on Tuesday, March 22nd at Maker Faire Detroit Town Hall.
P.S. If you would like to continue the conversation, and stop by for a beverage, we will meet at Circa 1890 after the event. Circa 1890 is located at 5474 CASS Avenue (under the white awning).
Free parking will be available in the DPL staff parking lot, accessible from Putnam Street on the South side of the building.
