Cleveland Mini-Maker Faire 2014 Planning Session

Cleveland Mini-Maker Faire 2014 is scheduled 3/29 between 10a-6p at the Cleveland Public Library. I highly encourage you to attend. I plan to be there the whole day.

I was able to attend the Cleveland Mini-Maker Faire 2014 Planning Session today.

I took some videos, thought I’d share them with the community.

Important take home for me from the planning session:

  • Applications do get denied. The event is competitive for obvious reasons
  • Make magazine has featured a post from James in their online magazine:
  • During the session, I did briefly step in front of the camera to make a case for ‘if you host speakers, the speakers have public content that they don’t mind sharing, then video tape them for those who were not able to attend as we all have been in that situation’.
  • Interactive projects and makers rule Maker Faire events
  • Things involving fire (and other makers that cannot be hosted at the Cleveland Public Library), automatically put on a list for other events like Ingenuity Festival ( or Bal Ingenieux (
  • This year will feature 100 makers
  • Vaudeville act from Pinch and Squeal (

Looking forward to this years Ingenuity Festival. 

For the super impatient, two links that will lead you to the video playlist on youtube:

If you missed these sessions, well I’ve got you covered. But I expect readers to make it out to the next planning session for 2015 year so that we can make Cleveland Mini-Maker Faire a Cleveland Maker Faire finally.
