PDX Maker Week is a celebration of Portland's active and diverse Maker community. "What is a Maker?", you might ask. Well, Makers (though some might disagree) orbit somewhere around the intersection of craft, technology, hacking, DIY, commerce and curiosity. If you're curious yourself, take a look at Maker Culture on Wikipedia
That said, and returning to PDX Maker Week ... The Week consists of independently organized events and activities from the world of Maker craft, knowledge, and practice. Our mission is to highlight the cornucopia of local Makers, and encourage personal connection to Making as a foundation for learning, growth, social change, and entrepreneurship.
