Maker Faire is all about showcasing YOUR projects, inventions, skills, ideas and art. If you would like to share your project or your talents with the community then consider exhibiting with us at the 2015 Jackson Hole Mini Maker Faire.

Fill out and submit this form between now and April 17, 2015, if you would like to exhibit with us at the 2015 Jackson Hole Mini Maker Faire. Space is limited so we’ll be accepting exhibits on a first-come first-serve basis, based upon the merits of the exhibit.

SOME GUIDELINES FOR EXHIBITS:

BEST:

  • Interactive! An exhibit where the public can safely get their hands dirty and make something or learn something. (examples: Learn to Solder, Ham Radio, Squishy Circuits Demo, Recycled Crochet and Plarning)
  • Playful! An interactive exhibit where kids (of all ages) can free their mind and simply play. (examples: Thinker Linkers, Lego Bricks, Robotic Gladiators, Build a Cardboard City)

NEXT BEST:

  • An in-person demonstration of a project, skill, art, craft, or talent.  Something that will inspire folks to go home and get involved in that subject or learn more. (examples: Tesla Coil, Wood Turning, Arduino Programming, Underground Railroad Quilting)
  • Performances, Exhibits, or Kinetic Art that include “how and why I made this” (examples: Steam Punk Art, Interesting Musical Instruments, Giant Robot Suits)
  • A showcase of your invention, project, new-product, or maker-related business.  (examples: ShopBot Tools, Kickstarter Projects, Science Kits)

JUST OK:

  • Static Displays {in a limited number of spots around the overall exhibit} and only if the creator is willing to be available to answer questions and explain how-why the made what they made. (examples: Sculpture, Student Projects, Science Projects)

A FEW DON’TS:

  • Unsafe Exhibits will not be allowed (a safety plan must be submitted for any exhibit that may be potentially harmful)
  • Maker Faire is about showcasing your ideas and your art, it is not a trade show or commercial venue.  The goal is to inspire (not to sell), though if visitors are inspired to seek out your products or services later that is a great thing for your small maker business!
  • Arrive late or leave early. The exhibit should be set up and running for the public at 12:00 pm and you should not tear down your exhibit prior to 4:00 pm. (if you need special accommodations due to distance or other factors please let us know)
