What is Dublin Maker?
Dublin Maker is a free to attend, community run event, which will be held on Saturday July 2oth, 2019 in Merrion Square, Dublin. Dublin Maker takes the form of a “show and tell” experience where inventors/makers sourced through an open call, will have an opportunity to showcase their creations at individual booths in a carnival atmosphere. It is a family friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds, coming from all over Ireland and beyond. Dublin Maker’s mission is to entertain, inform and connect the makers of Ireland, while inspiring the next generation of Ireland’s makers and inventors.
This year Dublin Maker will again happen during the Festival of Curiosity, Dublin’s outstanding Science festival. We are delighted to be partnering up with our Curious friends this year again and to be helping to make a truly unforgettable weekend full of science, creativity and curiosity.
