The organisers of the excellent Liverpool MakeFest, now in its third very successful year, have opened up an official Call for Makers with a focus on this year's theme of interactive arts, crafts, and music - and you've got until the 31st of March to get your application polished and submitted.
Held in the Liverpool Central Library, a short walk from Lime Street Station, the Liverpool MakeFest is always a blast - as you can see from our field report covering the first back in 2015. Described by its organisers as " a fun, free, family festival of everything makey," it's first year was a major success and things only got bigger and better in its second year.
For each event, the organiser pick an overall theme - though makers from any discipline are always welcome. The first year was about making and how hobbyists and small to medium enterprises can work together; the second was a blend of makers, comic-book and cosplay enthusiasts.
"This year we'd really love to focus on interactive arts, crafts, fabrics and costumes, jewellers, metal workers, wood workers, glass workers, music," the event's organisers have announced. "Whether that's making in the analogue sense (we'd love an application from anyone prepared to help people turn old tee-shirts into tote bags!) or making in the digital sense (we'd love to hear from people merging hardware and "soft-wear" together!)"
The Call for Makers is open until the 31st of March, with the LiverPool MakeFest 2017 itself taking place on Saturday the 24th of June at Liverpool Central Library. Interested makers can fill in the official application form to exhibit or run a workshop on the day.
