What is Meet the Maker?
Meet the Maker is a professional networking event for young designers, architects, performers, and artists. At the meeting, 'makers' can exhibit their work and present it to a selected group of professionals from various disciplines, including curators, writers, journalists, thinkers and policymakers. As a maker, you get the opportunity to enter into a dialogue about artistic and practical questions and about the development of your oeuvre.
