This thread is for discussing means of announcing the Minne-Faire and attracting exhibitors in the maker community. I am personally interested in writing some promotional copy and creating other communications for this.

I've written up some brief text for announcing and soliciting exhibitors. This should work for community newspapers, store bulletin boards, notices to other maker groups and such.

I've made up an email address and don't know what times are set for the event, but how does this look?

Twin Cities Maker, a non-profit group for advancing the local do-it-yourself and arts communities, is hosting its second "Minne-Faire," a mini maker faire, on April 9, 2011.

The event will be held at the group's Hack Factory workshop, from ??? AM/PM to ??? AM/PM, at 3119 E. 26th St. in Minneapolis, MN.

Twin Cities Maker is seeking individuals, groups, and businesses interested in demonstrating at, selling at, or sponsoring this event.

To express interest and request details, send an email to [email protected] . More about Twin Cities Maker is at http://www.tcmaker.org .

I like the copy, Wayne, it looks great.

One question, would it be possible to have the email address much shorter, with no spaces, i.e. something someone could look at , and easily remember?

Maybe : [email protected] ?

Yes, it was 2-6 PM for the mini maker faire and 7-11 PM for the art show. I don't recall off-hand at what time we allowed the exhibitors to start setting up.

Side note: I'm soon leaving for the weekend and will have limited computer access, if any at all. So you won't see much from me in posts over the weekend.

minne@ would work for me, as long as brandon can set it so that mini@ would also go in the right folder. Ditto faire, if we get fair (and fare).

I'd like to get some flyers going, if we've got a budget for that. maybe we could run around and hit the bulletin boards in a lot of coffee shops in the metro.

Student union bulletin boards?

Downtown saint paul has some artist collective apartment buildings, their lobby bulletin boards would be a good bet.

Already got some made up, just need to know what time the minne-faire will be and if we'll still be including an "art show" portion, or "performance" portion, or what.
