From the Maker Faire Africa Blog:
Maker Faire Africa is pleased to announce our 3rd event, â€˜Maker Faire Africa 2011 : Cairoâ€˜ which will take place in Egypt, October 6-8th, 2011. Â Join us once again as we continue to cultivate Â new and existing maker communities across Africa. As was the case in Accra (â€˜09) and Nairobi (â€™10), MFA 2011 will present and spotlight the vibrant and endlessly creative individuals that have come to represent the spirit of â€˜makingâ€™ throughout the continent.
These innovators, artists and tinkerers will be exhibiting a fusion of the informal and formal; ideas, inventions, hacks and designs both low-tech & high-tech. Â From cuisine to machines, come see their re-imagining of products, exploration of novel materials, and original solutions for some of the continentâ€™s most important challenges and opportunities. Â Maker Faire Africa 2011 will be a celebratory showcase of unhindered experimentation and curiosity. We look forward to seeing you this October.
