The Groningen Maker Faire is the annual platform for makers. One day long, inventors, buildings, hackers, nerds and tinkerers show the world what they think of, create and develop. The large exposition, the many workshops, Maker Talks and the scrapheap challenge inspire visitors of all ages to roll up their sleeves and get making themselves. Explore your own talents and discover your own, personal makership. Be creative with technology, science, robotics, sustainability, engineering, art, crafts, DIY and much, much more!
You can still sign up to join the Faire as a maker! Want to join the exposition? Host a workshop? Give a Maker Talk or take part in the scrapheap challenge? Sign up!
After the Call for Makers is closed, the program will be put together. So keep an eye on this page for updates and further developments!
