Creative Making in Libraries & Museums
Monday & Tuesday July 22 & 23, 2013
www.creativemaking.org
University of Toronto iSchool Institute Symposium
in partnership with Dysart & Jones Associates

One of the hottest trends today is FabLabs, 3D printing, Makerspaces and the
connection of libraries and museums to creation and invention.  It's time
for a symposium on the current landscape and a look at the opportunities for
research, programs, practices and experiences of pioneers in this space.
Dysart & Jones Associates have assembled a stellar crew of the leading
thinkers and innovators in the fields of critical making.  Attendees will
tour the University of Toronto iSchool Semaphore Research Lab, hear of
international innovations in FabLabs and Makerspaces in libraries, explore
the use of maker technology in museums and cultural institutions, and learn
the connections to strategies for research, community and education.

When one of Time magazine's top 100 thinkers, Chris Anderson, a famed
journalist, and editor of Wired magazine and entrepreneur, writes his third
book (following librarians' favorite, The Long Tail) on Makers: The New
Industrial Revolution  in 2012, you know the maker revolution is on the way!
The book describes how entrepreneurs using open source design, and 3D
printing as a platform are driving a resurgence of American manufacturing.
The innovations portrayed, crowdsourcing of ideas, utilization of available
lower-cost design and manufacturing tools, and reviewing options to
outsource capital-intensive manufacturing were also highlighted in the
February 2012 Harvard Business Review article, "From Do It Yourself to Do It
Together".

Many industries, libraries, and museums have embraced the maker revolution.
This two-day symposium illustrates the breadth and depth of the revolution,
puts it into the context of libraries and museums, shares exciting programs
already being pioneered and suggests areas for future endeavours.  It
features leading edge thinkers and practitioners, includes a tour of the
University of Toronto's Critical Making Lab and focuses on strategies for
libraries, museums, K-12 and other education and academic institutions.
