About Maker Faire Ruhr

On 10-11 March 2018 the third edition of Maker Faire Ruhr transforms the DASA Working World Exhibition into a creative laboratory of ideas. Maker Faire Ruhr invites Makers of all kinds to present their innovative projects and share new and inspiring ideas. Come join us and become a maker yourself: At Maker Faire Ruhr you can discover exciting experiments surrounded by wooden typewriters, early televisions and manually driven printing machines. The setting of the DASA Working World Exhibition gives Maker Faire Ruhr its particular atmosphere – here some impressions from 2017 as well as a video of Maker Faire Ruhr 2017:

 

 

What is a Maker Faire?

A Maker Faire is a platform for young scientists and designers, but also for citizens, associations and hobbyists to present their projects to a broad public and to build networks with other Makers.

The original Maker Faire event was held 2006 in San Mateo, California, started by the editors of Make Magazine.
