Welcome to Maker Faire Zagreb media center.
Maker Faire Zagreb 2021
After almost 11,000 visitors in 2019, and a successful virtual Maker Faire 2020, we are looking forward to this year’s event. Even though the epidemiological situation was somewhat improved, there are still serious obstacles in organizing a public event this year. This is the reason why we opted for an outdoor location – in this case – the open space of European square in the centre of Zagreb. We hope that this decision will facilitate an easier access to the venue and also – prevent transmission of coronavirus among the visitors.
We especially want to thank the American Embassy in Zagreb, which, despite all of these challenges, recognized our efforts and activities and financially supported Maker Faire Zagreb 2021. We hope to justify their trust in these challenging circumstances.
Maker Faire Zagreb 2020
Maker Faire Zagreb 2020 was to be held in the middle of the coronavirus outbreak. This made us rethink our concept of presenting the work of innovators and ways of engaging the public in their shows, workshops, etc. In the end, we decided to organize a hybrid event with a limited physical presentation taking place in Technical museum Nikola Tesla and a – public online presence that involved the audience from Croatia and all around the world.
Maker Faire Zagreb 2019
Maker Faire Zagreb 2019 was the first Maker Faire event ever held in Zagreb. It was held on Saturday and Sunday, October 12th and 13th, 2019 in the inspirational space of the Technical Museum of Nikola Tesla, and hosted numerous domestic and foreign exhibitors from the fields of science, technology, art, crafts and entrepreneurship. Through discussions, practical shows and many workshops visitors were able to familiarize themselves with a number of modern technological processes.
The Maker Faire
Maker Faire is a set of world events designed to connect creators with the public. It is the largest “show and tell” family festival of innovation, creativity and technology. Artistic participants provide us an opportunity to see works that usually remain hidden in garages, workshops, studios or kitchen desks. The purpose of this event is to promote the “creators” of the movement and create new creators from the young and the elderly. Every year, more than 190 such events in 38 countries, with more than 1.45 million people, are organized all over the world.
