Heartland Maker Fest
October 14th @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Makerspace Urbana is thrilled to announce our annual Heartland Maker Fest! On Saturday, October 14, 2017 at Lincoln Square Mall in Downtown Urbana, makers, tinkerers, creators, inventors, DIYers, and musicians will gather together to share their work with the public.
We are proud to showcase talent from local creative communities who are eager to share and play with other each other and the community at large. We show how art and science can meld together, and provide a hands-on approach for those who are inspired to create and learn. Keep up-to-date as we announce new participating makers at our “Meet the Makers” page!
We wish to:
*Inspire: By searching for creative and unique makers to exhibit at the festival we hope attendees are inspired by the creative projects of others.
*Empower: By focusing on hands-on experiences we hope people feel empowered to make their own projects a reality.
*Connect: By creating a free and open public festival we hope to connect attendees to the local resources they need to help make their ideas come to life.
Thanks to our sponsors, especially the Urbana Public Arts Program, the event is free and open to all.
