Our ‘Call to Makers’ application process has now closed, and we’re extremely happy to say that we’ve received an amazing array of proposals from all kinds of makers. We’re really impressed at the sheer range of skills and ideas that have been put forward, and are excited about the prospect of going through them all in more detail and getting to know our 2012 makers.

We’re now in the process of working out just how we can best showcase everything in our beautiful venue of the Brighton Dome and Corn Exchange. Once we get a better handle on just how much space the current applications will need, and what we’ll have we have remaining, we may open up a second round of applications soon.

If you have an amazing idea for a project and missed our deadline, please feel free to get in touch with us via [email protected]. We’re also still interested in hearing from theatrical types who would like to help liven up the event with some homemade costumery and live performance – like these crazy characters from San Mateo Maker Faire:

Thanks a million to all that applied, we’ll be in touch soon to discuss details.
