If you are interested in being a Twin Tiers Mini Maker Faire sponsor, please contact us. Our event has a limited budget so, in an effort to make it the best it can be, we are reaching out to local organizations for sponsorship this year. Together, with your help, we can inspire innovation and creativity in our community for years to come.
We are excited to announce the Chemung County Library District, Corning Community College, and Southeast Steuben County Library have joined forces to host the second annual Twin Tiers Mini Maker Faire on April 14th, 2018 at the Arnot Mall in Horseheads, New York.
Maker Faire is a brand known around the globe for its inspirational, family-friendly events. These events have helped to spark the ever-growing “maker movement”. Using both community members and outside exhibitors, Maker Faire puts on, what they like to call, “The Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth,” and it certainly lives up to the name. Reaching out to enthusiasts, crafters, educators, and tinkerers alike, Maker Faire aims to inspire creativity in communities throughout the world with Do-It-Yourself projects and educational experiments.
In 2014, Chemung County Library District perceived a need within our community for an innovative program that would inspire its members in new, fun, and creative ways. From this the CCLD Maker Expo was born, drawing over 100 Makers and 3000 attendees from 2014-2016. As we have transitioned to the status of Mini Maker Faire, this year stands to be our biggest and best year yet.
Our partner, Corning Community College, earned the number one ranking for Two-Year Colleges in New York State by BestColleges.com- a nationally-recognized source of college planning information. The college was noted for its high success rate for transfer students, a wide range of degree options, and competitive in- and out-of-state tuition rates.
We are further strengthened by our partnership with the Southeast Steuben County Library which serves the City of Corning and the towns of Erwin, Corning, Caton, Lindley, Hornby and Campbell.
Please consider your ability to assist us with giving at one of the sponsorship levels listed.
