Hey community, sorry for keeping you waiting. Huge news to update, Maker Faire Shenzhen 2018 will take place on October 12-14th, 2018 at the Sea World Culture and Arts Center, in Shekou, Nanshan. The Open Call for Makers will be closed on September 25th, 2018. Apply now to secure a spot!
You might notice that we are having it at a new venue this year. Indeed it is kind of a routine for MFSZ, as we change venue every year with the aim to connect our Maker Faire Shenzhen community with various local communities and to build up special bonds within the city.
The Sea World Culture and Arts Center (SWCAC) is located within Sea World’s coastal city complex in Shekou, Nanshan District, Shenzhen. It is also the first building designed by the famous Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki in China. Facing the Bay, great ocean view and mountain view, we couldn’t ask for more. As it is also home to Design Society, Shenzhen’s first design museum in the city, we believe that the venue will bring a freshness of design and art to our Maker Faire Shenzhen community.
We do hope this update helps with your travel planning. Sincere apologies again for all the inconveniences caused. We will be posting further information about hotel recommendations in the area soon. Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions about the event or coming to Shenzhen. Can’t wait to meet you all at MFSZ2018 on October 12-14th.
