“Maker Faire Hong Kong 2017 x Make Big” is a must-attend event for Hong Kong Makers. Sponsored by Standard Chartered Hong Kong 150th Anniversary Community Foundation, PolyU Design is celebrating this big event together with more than 150 local and international Makers.
The event will be held on 8 and 9 April 2017 with a series of happenings, including exhibitions, workshops, sharings, and ten “Makers’ Day” in different neighbourhoods.
Together we hope to promote “Maker Culture” to the general public, demonstrating creativity, inventiveness and resourcefulness.
Since 2006, over 200 Maker Faires have been launched around the globe – including Maker Faire Hong Kong.
Date & Time
What’s a Maker Faire
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.
Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.
The launch of Maker Faire in the Bay Area in 2006 demonstrated the popularity of making and interest among legions of aspiring makers to participate in hands-on activities and learn new skills at the event. A record 215,000 people attended the two flagship Maker Faires in the Bay Area and New York in 2014, with 44% of attendees first timers at the Bay Area event, and 61% in New York. A family-friendly event, 50% attend the event with children. Also in 2014, 119 independently-produced Mini and 14 Featured Maker Faires occurred around the world, including Tokyo, Rome, Detroit, Oslo and Shenzhen.
