If you are a maker with a pending exhibit, don’t be dismayed if we have not approved your exhibit yet. We meet weekly to review and approve – and we work hard to ensure that we have a diverse group of exhibits, and that we can meet the requirements of each exhibit. It takes time, and we greatly appreciate your patience 🙂
As part of our preparations for Maker Faire Orlando 2016, we are introducing a number of new concepts in how we work with our Community Partners. We are holding open meetings at a number of community locations (FamiLAB Open House on 3/1, and Tampa Hackerspace Open Make Night on 3/8 have been scheduled so far) – and we want to openly share (this post) how we work with community partners in an effort to involve even more community groups in Maker Faire. You are welcome to connect with us one of the scheduled meetings, or have us speak to your group, or discuss any of this directly – just email us at email@example.com.
The following is an overview of the content that we will sharing in our community discussions, and we will update it as we do Q&A with each group.
