Botello Lumber is well-known for its charitable work in the community, and we are proud to have Botello’s as the event sponsor for the 2018 Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire. It can be a  challenge to explain the concepts of Makers and Maker Faires but not for Botello’s.  They have been enabling Cape Codders to build and make for years!  They offer a full-service lumber yard with site repair service, a customized mill, contractor division, kitchen and bath showroom, hardware center complete with a paint and wallpaper shop, plus a state-of-the-art rental center filled with hundreds of tools.  Thank you, Botello’s, for supporting the Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire!

 

The Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire is a free, all-ages event featuring community members who come together to display their ideas, projects, and inventions.  The Faire featured our Cape-wide robotics contest with 15 teams participating, stage performances, and a Swap-o-Rama-Rama clothing upcycling event!

In 2018, we plan to build on this success, and we will need your help! Your support will pay for components and tools for hands-on activities, tents, table rentals, signage, and all the other things that makers need to share their creations.  Sponsoring the Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire is a unique opportunity to support Cape Cod’s burgeoning creativity and innovation movement. Sponsors receive not only recognition for supporting the event, but also associate with a growing group of people interested in creativity, art, technology, sustainability, science and engineering.

We have many opportunities to support the Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire.  For details, please click on the sponsorship link. You can also contact us at 508-827-1564 or at info@capecodmakers.org

55-original-AFCC_colorThank you so much to the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod for a second year of support. The AFCC is the regional arts agency for Barnstable County, committed to strengthening and promoting Cape Cod’s arts and cultural industry throughout the year.     We attended the grant reception at the Cape Cod Media Center in Dennisport in November, and were amazed by the range of projects covered.

You can subscribe to their e-newsletter, become a volunteer, and find a new play, concert or exhibit to attend.   There are opportunities to donate or become a member of this excellent organization.

CC5OVALLogo302LargeWe’d like to extend a sincere thank you to Cape Cod Five, who is also supporting us for the second year. Cape Cod Five is a tremendous force for good in the community, strengthening the social and economic well-being of the community that it serves. The Bank generously supports events and activities in the areas of arts and culture, conservation and environment, health and elder services, youth and education, and human need and economic development.   They also have generously funded a program of educational mini-grants for teachers.  We are truly grateful for the support of Cape Cod Five.

mccThis was the first year that we applied for a grant from the Mid-Cape Cultural Council, and we were so happy to learn that they have supported the Maker Faire! The Mid-Cape Cultural Council is a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. The MCC promotes and supports the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences to benefit people in the towns of Barnstable and Yarmouth. They support programs that build awareness of local heritage, natural resources, and the arts including field trips, public art, festivals and concerts. They also received a special honor last year in that they were named the 2014 Council of the Year by the Massachusetts Cultural Council!   We appreciate their support!

cctcLast, but not least, the Cape Cod Technology Council has been a wonderful advocate of Cape Cod Makers and the Maker Faire. Council President Paula Hersey and her team work tirelessly to promote many activities and programs related to technology and innovation on Cape Cod. Become a member to meet other people in the technology community and to become involved in the issues that affect the Cape.
