San Francisco is widely recognized as one of the primary hubs of tech culture in the world. With dozens of startups and globally ubiquitous companies (such as Apple, Google, and Facebook) camped in its backyard, its reputation as a mecca for creative oddballs, computer geeks, code writers, and rich people is well deserved. This weekend, all of that comes together during the Re:Make festival put on by Brit+Co, a company that works with and for makers of all stripes. Kicking off with a special summit on Friday, September 30th, that looks to bring together innovators and major players in the current creative and branding market, the festival itself goes into maximum overdrive on Saturday, October 1st, when hundreds of bright minds will gather together at Fort Mason Center for a day of information exchange, workshops, demonstrations, lectures, and brainstorming.
Another San Francisco staple, food trucks, will be on hand to satisfy all of the food and drink cravings you experience throughout the day. Or, if you are feeling particularly moved by the technological glimpse into the near future, eat some food manufactured by a 3D printer instead! Re:Make will also feature plenty of live music by some of the Bay Area’s hottest acts and dance parties provided by DJs of all stripes.
The goal of all of this is to help you to tap into your own unique brand of creativity, to help you reach inside of yourself and pull out that funky (and marketable) idea that might be the next big investment opportunity for the numerous Silicon Valley gurus who will be attending the event, mingling with the regular folks.
Participate in any number of the free DIY workshops and classes, or just hang out and shop, shop, shop at any one of the dozens of booths run by Brit+Co affiliates. It will be almost too much to wrap your head around, but don’t let yourself get too overwhelmed. Just dive in, dance, and DIY.
The Re:Make 2016 festival will take place on Saturday, October 1st, from 10:00am until 5:00pm. The entire event is free, however individuals who are interested in attending must first RSVP.
