An event where various Makers from around the country gather together to show off, talk about and share the joy of their creations. The Make: Ogaki Meeting, held in 2012, erupted in surprise, excitement and empathy, with more than 140 exhibitors and approximately 5000 guests.

This time around, we have re-named the event the “Ogaki Mini Maker Faire”, and with the theme of “Let’s start from making. Objects / Play / Culture”, the event will be held in the hopes that it will be a catalyst for creating a new culture of making things. Technology enthusiasts, crafters, technical experts and developers from educational institutions and businesses, etc. will come together to exhibit and present their works, and in addition, there will be workshops, live performances and presentations that visitors can enjoy with their families.
