Locavores and local lovers, take heed: There's a new event that's catering to Kansas City talent. It's called Maker Faire: Kansas City, and here's the description of the event from its website:
Maker Faire: Kansas City celebrates things people create themselves -- from new technology and electronic gizmos to urban farming and "slow-made" foods to homemade clothes, quilts and sculptures. This family-friendly event demonstrates what and how people are inventing, making and creating. It brings together Makers, Crafters, Inventors, Hackers, Scientists and Artists for a faire full of fun and inspiration. Come see what others are making and be inspired to tap into your own creativity!
Even better: Local music is a part of this celebration, too.
As Maker Faire asks itself, "What would this faire be without great music?" (Man, we like this event already.) Check it out:
We are looking for talented, creative and amazing musicians to perform at the 2011 Maker Faire: Kansas City. To apply to be an act at Maker Faire: Kansas City, please fill out the musician form below.
We will have a dedicated space for musicians to perform your live music for 25 minutes out of every hour; then, 15 minutes for the musician(s) to talk with attendees and discuss instruments and techniques; and then, 20 minutes of teardown/setup for the next musician.
