Maker Fest is an all-ages showcase and celebration of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, a place to meet and interact with like minded top-notch innovators from different walks of life. It aims to bring together a community of creators and makers spanning the length and breadth of India and give them a platform to showcase their ideas and creations. It is designed to be a uniquely Indian maker activity to celebrate and exhibit the maker movement in India.
Following in the footsteps of Maker Faire across America, Europe, Africa, and Japan, among others, Maker Fest is part innovation fair, part art show, and part celebratory festival that hopes to inspire everyone to become an inventor. At Maker Fest, we commemorate the entire journey of making: not just the final product, but also all the learning experiences that come along with trying something new. So bring your ideas and enthusiasm, and explore, discover, and make.
Our vision is to catalyze innovation and entrepreneurship in India at the grassroots level. I've attended the California Maker Faire with my children for many years so I've seen the impact it can have. Maker Fairs are filled with people like you and me who are just making things at home—and when they get the chance to share their projects and find collaborators, great new products and companies emerge. We hope this will be the first of many events, and that Maker Fest will spread across India to showcase makers, tinkerers, and do-ers of every stripe. - Asha Jadeja
