Maker Faire Africa is delighted to announce our 4th event Maker Faire Africa, Lagos which will take place in Nigeria, November 5-6th, 2012. Join us once again as we continue to cultivate new and existing maker communities across Africa. As was the case in Accra (‘09),Nairobi (’10) and Cairo (’11) MFA 2012 will present and spotlight the vibrant and endlessly creative individuals that have come to represent the spirit of ‘making’ throughout the continent.These innovators, artists and tinkerers will be exhibiting a fusion of the informal and formal; ideas, inventions, hacks and designs both low-tech & high-tech. From cuisine to machines, come see their re-imagining of products, exploration of novel materials, and original solutions for some of the continent’s most important challenges and opportunities. We are excited to be having this event in Africa’s most populous and vibrant city.A megapolis that pulses with the possibility and imagination that feeds the spirits of those who create. Maker Faire Africa 2012 will be a celebratory showcase of unhindered experimentation and curiosity. We look forward to seeing you this November.

  1. I wish you the best of luck in your continued success. I cannot join you this year, just as I haven’t been able to do since your inaugurating faire in Accra back in ’09. With careful progress, I hope to meet up with you on behalf of DSBE (www.dsb-e.com) before the decade’s up.

    I had no idea that MAKE had an event in Africa and even in Lagos. I stay in Lagos and I did not even know. Please where is the venue. Please keep me posted as to MAkE’s activities in Africa. I have always loved making things since I was a kid.
