First Volunteer Meeting of 2012

These people had fun last year. This could be you!

Have you registered yet to volunteer at this year’s Vancouver Mini Maker Faire?


Yes? That’s great!


Still not sure? Want to talk to a real person before making a virtual commitment?


Registered or not, you’re invited to our Volunteer Meeting on Saturday May 12 from 3-5 pm at the W2 Media Cafe.


We’ll be talking about the volunteer opportunities available, both on Maker Faire weekend and in the weeks leading up to the Faire. (Art Bikes anyone? Yarnbombing?) We’ll talk about our new venue and what it means for the volunteers. We’ll answer your questions to the best of our abilities and hopefully provide a few laughs.


Sign In begins at 3 pm with the meeting starting at 3:15 pm and going until 4:30 or so.


We’ll be meeting in the basement Performance Space at W2. If you’ve never been to W2, its entrance is inside the atrium at the new Woodsward’s complex, next to London Drugs.


And if you’re on Facebook, head over to the event page to let us know you’re coming.

Vancouver Mini Maker Faire 2012 Call for Makers is live and Applications are open!

We’re excited to announce that the Call for Makers for Vancouver Mini Maker Faire 2012 is now live! Applications are now open for Individual Makers, Maker Groups, Startup Makers, and Commercial Makers.


Please pass on the news to all the makers, doers, and creatives in the community!



Call for Makers


For makers, Vancouver Mini Maker Faire is a community-run event aimed at bringing Vancouver’s Makers, Doers, and Creatives together for a weekend of sharing knowledge, inspiring each other, exhibiting projects, and community building.
For attendees, Vancouver Mini Maker Faire is like a science fair meets farmers’ market meets Burning Man (with pants) – for families!


The 2012 Vancouver Mini Maker Faire will be held on the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of June at the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE). Early-bird applications from Makers are due by April 21st, and qualify for a 20% discount. Final applications close on May 19th. But don’t delay until the last minute as the earlier applications will help direct how we layout and allocate the space; so the sooner you apply, the more weight your requirements will have on the event and the better we can work to accommodate your needs!
