European Local Makers Network exhibtion on the Amsterdam Maker Festival

Ohhh I am really looking forward to this weekend when 20 beautiful makers and artists will join the ELMN exhibit at the Amsterdam Maker Festival. I am especially impressed with all the people who volunteered to help out! It feels like teamwork!

Sarah designed the very first ever logo of the European Local Makers Network, tadaaaa:

We have six volunteers who will be the exhibition supposts and give information to the visitors. And some of them do a live demonstration of their maker-skills when they’re there. Here is the schedule for the live demonstrations:

And you know what! I’ll be doing some extra things at Amsterdam Maker Festival. I’ll host a short talk¬†(Pecha Kucha) on the different Pop-Up shops I co-organized to help people who want to start a shop with some more information. That’s Friday the 19th at 4 PM.

Even before that, on Friday the 19th at 1.30 PM, I’ll host a knowledge sharing session on Copy Cats. Together with all the participants who are there, we’ll do guided group conversations about copy cats and how you can deal with them. How to deal with Copy Cats.

Lastly, on Saturday the 20th of august, I’ll sit at a table and host a ‘First Aid Ideas’ session. This session/table is about Selling at Live Events. That’s from 1.30 to 3.30 PM, and as soon as I know where it is, I’ll let you know!

Exhibition European Local Makers Network

From August 19th to 21st, the Amsterdam Maker Festival will take place at the marineterrein in Amsterdam. European Local Makers Network will partcipate in this event with an exhibit and knowledge sharing sessions.

We will have a small space full of beautiful products by local makers in our network. Because I have a desk at Makerversity, where all the fun takes place, we can do this for a very small price per maker!

I am superexcited. This is exactely why I started the European Local Makers Network: to provide an affordable opportunity to lots of makers, facilitated by the network itself. We have volunteers who attend the exhibit and help out to protect each others stuff, we have people who help design different parts of the exhibit, people who help out with the selection process, really, it couldn’t be better!
