Help promote the #maker movement across Europe: get on board and organize a #maker event to let the world know about your work and your projects
European Maker Week is an initiative promoted by the European Commission and implemented by Maker Faire Rome in collaboration with Startup Europe, aim to draw attention toward the “maker world” and the fablab, makerspace, and hardware startup environment. Last year more than 500 events have been organized across Europe: this year we want to break the record! From Oct. 23 to 29 all the EU Countries are invited to take part and share with us the II Edition of the European Maker Week!
The aim of European Maker Week is two folds:
- To create awareness about the importance of the maker culture
- To build bridges between local authorities and media and the main players of their own local makers ecosystems
European Maker Week is particularly interested in reach out to new players who have never organized a maker event before. How can we do that? By fostering hundreds of makers events to reach the largest possible audience!
We strongly think that, with the support of each and everyone who is involved in the “making”, the European Maker Week will greatly benefit both local maker communities and the standing of the maker movement across Europe.
Want to be part of it? Consider organizing an event in your city/region/country. And don’t worry about previous experience: we are here to help!
