Call for makers

Liverpool MakeFest 2017, Liverpool Central Library, William Brown Street, Liverpool, L3, until 31 March

Yet again MakeFest are repurposing Liverpool Central Library, William Brown Street, Liverpool, for a free festival and celebration of all things “makey”, attracting over 3000 members of the public each year. And you’re invited to participate :)

The call is open to Makers, Maker/Hack spaces (and their communities), STEAM practitioners for workshops, demonstrations, and activities, artist and crafters, maker trades people, businesses, clubs, societies, and anyone (entertainers and cosplayers) or anything else believing in the maker-ethos and/or maker movement!

Each year they’ve had a different sub-focus to our larger theme of putting Makers and maker-spaces front and centre of Liverpool MakeFest. In the first year they combined making and complimentary SMEs together. Last year they combined making with comics and cosplay. Both of which they continue to include with a passion!

This year they’d really love to focus on interactive arts, crafts, fabrics and costumes, jewellers, metal workers, wood workers, glass workers, music- whether that’s making in the analogue sense (they’d love an application from anyone prepared to help people turn old tee-shirts into tote bags!) or making in the digital sense (they’d love to hear from people merging hardware and “soft-wear” together!) they really want to hear from you!
