On Sunday the Call for Makers process for this years Elephant & Castle Mini Maker Faire finally closed. We had over 80 applications, everything from ceramics and Lego to electronics and bio-technology.
We are truly enthralled by your responses and the difficult work of working through the applications has now also finished and we are beginning to notify applicants of our decision. We’ve decided to accept 68 applications and unfortunately reject 11, while some others we are still discussing.
We have already contacted all the applicants who we weren’t able to accept this year, mainly these were down to being overly commercially orientated and we want Elephant & Castle Mini Maker Faire to closely follow the spirit of Maker Faire and focus on celebrating on making, crafting, tinkering and learning.
Over the next couple weeks we will be contacting the remaining applicants who have been accepted to ask them to provide additional information and confirm their attendance.
