Joy Suliman from Irresistible Learning and Mel Fuller of Makers Place are teaming up to present this professional development event. We want to share with libraries, community, and arts organisations how to bring what's best about maker culture into community engagement and learning programs. 

Join us and our amazing speakers for a robust and purposeful dialogue about Maker Culture. We will be sharing our best practice examples, tips, networks, and lessons learned from experience.
