Vancouver Maker Foundation is a non-profit committed to building a strong and vibrant community of Makers in the city of Vancouver.
Vancouver Maker Foundation has brought together a broad range of Vancouver artists, hobbyists, creatives, collectives, and small businesses through events and projects including the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire, Maker Music, the Young Makers Program, and Public art workshops and installations. Our driving purpose is to continue on this mission of connecting like-minded tinkerers in order to cross-pollinate ideas, share resources, and inspire one another in exploring passion projects, hobbies, businesses, or achieving a unique feat.
Vancouver’s Maker community is what we make it. Each project represents a unique opportunity to take part in actively shaping the world around us. Approaching our third Vancouver Mini Maker Faire this June, we look forward to watching the community grow, and seeing even more creative, vibrant Makers emerge and take part in the conversation of what it means to ‘Make’ in Vancouver.
Our hope is that Vancouver Makers will be instrumental in solving regional problems, from environmental sustainability, energy efficiency, urban farming, or even ways of making our city a more vibrant and connected place to live. We are dedicated to creating opportunities for Makers, and look forward to connecting with more enthusiasts in 2013.
We are a very small group of passionate individuals working long hours, with very little funding to make all of this happen. We cover most of our costs from ticket sales, donations, and grants, but will require continued support to keep us going. If you like what you see, please help us continue our vision, to support Vancouver’s Makers, and donate.
