Event Details

This year, Maker Faire Ottawa will be a full featured Faire, one of only 20 worldwide and the only one in Canada. We're kicking off our Maker Faire season on Thursday 16 July with the launch of the Call for Makers. This launch is aimed at past, present and future exhibitors, emerging and established makers, partners and supporters. 

 
We'll have a screening of the documentary "Maker" (http://makerthemovie.com/), a bar hosted by Beau's and reams of blue paper and a fistful of silver sharpies for your ideas and feedback for this year's Maker Faire. 
 
So come out and let's build something together!

The success of the creative economy depends on the vision of its artists. At the fringes of mainstream feature films and television commercials, there is video and performance art. At the edges of mainstream music, there are audio-visual festivals taking audiences to their sensory limits. On the margins of engineering, there are do-it-yourself makers and Hackers. And so on.

More than any other sector, at the very heart of the creative economy, media artists engage with new technologies with a sense of play. Inspired by the powerful possibilities afforded by new technologies, media artists open up to new ways of thinking about, of doing technology. The stuff of Media Arts today encompasses online communities, game play, distributed and open source technology development, mixed or augmented reality experience, assistive technologies, cyborg bodies, and other as yet unimagined territories of invention.

From the very small DIY projects, to the spectacular events altering our sensorium, to virtual communities of technologists and creators, the Media Arts today remind us of technology's potential to elicit wonder. They are where technology – and human beings – come to play.
