About Our Maker Faire

Brought to you by the City of Monash in partnership with Monash Tech School, and with support from Monash University, the Monash Mini Maker Faire will bring together Monash based makers and the community as a celebration of creativity and technology.


For families and curious minds, come and be amazed by the talents of the exhibitors, and get involved with the hands on activities. It’s also a brilliant opportunity for Makers to share their creations, learn from each other, and meet like-minded innovators.


Monash is home to the Monash medical research precinct, the only Australian Synchrotron, CSIRO (the lead Australian Scientific Research agency), and the main campus of Australia’s largest university, Monash University. The Monash community has a rich artistic heritage, with the Monash Gallery of Art now known as the home of Australian Photography.


As such, Monash is home to an extensive and diverse community of makers, from crafters and artisans to scientists and tech-savvy creators and everything in between.

What is Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects.

We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

Glimpse the future and get inspired!
