Maker Faire Adelaide

Maker Faire Adelaide is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters.

Maker Faire Adelaide is an event for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments and projects. It is the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.


Maker Faire Adelaide – The Maker Movement

The Maker Movement has been described as the “new industrial revolution”… “the speed of delivery and the ability of masses to innovate using technology and tools that were previously held by bigger corporations and the government are new. The maker movement is perhaps the biggest change the economy will go through since the invention of the internet.”
In this session South Australian Makers will introduce you to the vibrant Maker community we have here in SA and how we’re fusing traditional skills with digital manufacturing technology. They’ll show you the amazing things that are already happening here in SA and the opportunity we have to establish ourselves as being the leader in the Maker Movement for Australia, and critically, how we can use our manufacturing legacy as a valuable asset to launch ourselves into a creative and innovative future.
