Thanks to a new partnership between Orlando Museum of Art, The Maker Effect Foundation and Orlando Science Center, Maker Faire Orlando 2015 will be held on September 12 and 13 in the Orlando Science Center, Loch Haven Park and the neighboring Orlando Museum of Art.

The two-day, family-friendly celebration will feature more than 250 local Makers, hands-on workshops and more that will entertain and inspire more than 15,000 members of the Central Florida community. The partnership with the Orlando Museum of Art is a result of the growth of Central Florida’s Maker community.

“The creativity demonstrated by the individuals participating in –and attending — the Maker Faire naturally coincides with the work of the Orlando Museum of Art,” said Glen Gentele, Director and CEO of the Orlando Museum of Art. “We are excited to join our colleagues at the Orlando Science Center in hosting Maker Faire Orlando.”

“Our continued expansion will allow even more makers to participate, and others in the community to see and learn from the incredible talents of our neighbors,” said Candy Cole, President and co-founder of The Maker Effect Foundation.

Maker Faire Orlando is made possible through the efforts of many individuals in the local Maker community and community partner organizations such as FamiLAB, Factur, Art & History Museums- Maitland, The Dorothy Lumley Melrose Center, Nerd Nite Orlando and Crealde School of Art.
