Join them once again as they continue to cultivate new and existing maker communities across Africa. As was the case in Accra (‘09),Nairobi (’10) and Cairo (’11) MFA 2012 will present and spotlight the vibrant and endlessly creative individuals that have come to represent the spirit of ‘making’ 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. From cuisine to machines, come see their re-imagining of products, exploration of novel materials, and original solutions for some of the continent’s most important challenges and opportunities. They are excited to be having this event in Africa’s most populous and vibrant city – Lagos.
A megapolis that pulses with the possibility and imagination that feeds the spirits of those who create. Maker Faire Africa 2012 will be a celebratory showcase of unhindered experimentation and curiosity.
