Join them once again as they continue to cultivate new and existing maker communities across Africa. As was the case in Accra (â€˜09),Nairobi (â€™10) and Cairo (â€™11) MFA 2012 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. 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. They are excited to be having this event in Africaâ€™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.
