Makerspace Urbana is thrilled to announce their annual Heartland Maker Fest! On Saturday, October 5, 2019 at Lincoln Square Mall in Downtown Urbana makers, tinkerers, creators, inventors, DIYers, and musicians will gather together to share their work with the public.
They are proud to showcase talent from local creative communities who are eager to share and play with other each other and the community at large. They show how art and science can meld together, and provide a hands-on approach for those who are inspired to create and learn.
The Fest’s mission is laid out in these three goals:
Inspire – by searching for creative and unique ways to exhibit at the festival. We hope the creative process of others inspires our attendees.
Empower – by focusing on hands-on experience, we hope people feel empowered to make their own project a reality.
Connect – by creating a free and open public festival we hope to connect attendees to the local resources they need to help make their ideas come to life.
A breakdown of the event, including past makers and new additions to this year’s fest, are featured on their webpage: heartlandmakerfest.org. This event is free to the public, but donations are welcome.
They invite you to come out and see what kind of interesting things people are doing in your community! You can visit the Urbana Free Library at the fest, too!
