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 (โ€˜09),Nairobi (โ€™10) and Cairo (โ€™11) MFA 2012 will present and spotlight the vibrant and endlessly creative individuals that have come to represent the spirit of โ€˜makingโ€™ 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 continentโ€™s most important challenges and opportunities.

We are excited to be having this event in Africaโ€™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.
