Dublin Maker will be held on July 26th, 2014 in a tented festival space on the grounds of Trinity College Dublin. It is a free to attend, community driven event. Maker Ireland takes the form of a “show and tell” experience where inventors/makers sourced through an open call, will have an opportunity to showcase their creations at individual booths in a carnival atmosphere. It will be 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.
The festival event itself is a culmination of ‘hack, craft and make’ activities, which begin with the launch of the open call in March 2014 and builds up throughout the year until the main festival event in July 2014.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors, and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds, coming from all over Ireland and beyond. Maker Ireland’s mission is to entertain, inform and connect the makers of Ireland, while inspiring the next generation of Ireland’s makers and inventors.
