To make or not to make, there is no question: humans are made to make things. The Southwest Maker Fest crams an abundance of tinkering and inspiration into one day on Saturday, March 22, in downtown Mesa.
The Maker Movement pledges allegiance to taking ideas from the imagination phase to create actual, physical things, whether crafted by hand or given a boost from forward-leaning tech and the Southwest Maker Fest celebrates those creations, whether they’re intended as art, experiment, or practical solution. There’s a full roster of cool presentations and exhibitors but we’re particularly looking forward to River Rat Rhythms’ demos of cigar box guitar constructing and the tech-inspired creations of HeatSync Labs, one of the Valley’s longest running outfits for makers.
Southwest Maker Fest gets hands on in downtown Mesa on Main and Center streets from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is free. Visit www.southwestmakerfest.com for more details.
