Maker Faire Africa



Africa is getting its very own Maker Faire—modeled after the conference of DIY inventors, crafters and all around innovators started in the Bay Area in 2006—organized by the masterminds behind the blogs Timbuktu Chronicles, AfriGadget and MIT’s International Development Design Summit. The first African installment will take place August 14-16 in Ghana and will include tracks on Robotics, Agriculture & Environment, Science & Engineering, Arts & Crafts. Here’s a link to the event blog.

I cannot wait to see what inspirational designs emerge from this meeting. Prediction: upcycling like we’ve never seen it before.
