Maker Faires and similar events are like show-and-tell events where people who make things share their creations. Trashmagination has hosted a table at three of these events over the years. Each event is a great opportunity to put Trashmagination’s inventions in front of people to hear their feedback. This weekend, Trashmagination had a table at KIDfest in Silver Spring, Maryland. In this podcast, I share observations about what worked and what didn’t, and how it can help me focus my Trashmagination energies going forward.
You can listen to my podcast episode on Maker Faires and other similar community events that celebrate creative reuse in this YouTube video. It originally aired in September 2017.
Maker Faires take place all over the world. To see a list of Maker Faires near you, check out makerfaire.com and you will likely be surprised by how many there are!
