A Playbook for Maker Event Organizers
The Maker Event Playbook is a community-driven playbook that documents a wide range of maker events and the topics that are relevant to maker event organizer. Whether you host small workshops in a makerspace or produce a large multi-day maker event such as a Maker Faire, this playbook is a place for you to find helpful information and to share the what you’ve learned with others.
The Maker Event Playbook is a project of Nation of Makers, and will be maintained long-term by the Nation of Makers community. The project’s initiation can be traced back to the maker event organizer track at NOMCON 2019 (the Nation of Makers annual conference) with a workshop that led to a call to action for a community-driven playbook for maker events. With support from Google as part of their ongoing support for the maker community, a project team formed in the fall of 2019 and the playbook was launched at NOMCON 2020!
