Re-Maker Fest!: Crafting New Ways with Old Stuff
Join re-makers at the Brown Paper Tickets Community Room on February 9th, bring an unwanted object, show off your remade / refurbished / repurposed work, and engage in an enlightening, informative, and entertaining discussion about remake culture.

Who is remaking the world?

Panelists:
- Brown Paper Tickets CEO and re-maker extraordinaire, Steve Butcher,
- University of Washington lecturer and dumpster-diving researcher David Giles, PhD,
- Ballard Reuse Lead Designer (of furniture and art crafted from salvaged materials), James Taylor, and
- Co-Founder and Executive Director of Seattle ReCreative, Jenna Boitano
will chat about the re-maker mindset: what it is, how to get it, and what to do once you have it.

Special guest: Raghe Abdirahman - Founder, East African Rural Development Foundation

Why should you join us on Monday, February 9th, to explore the world of remaking?

You will get to:
- show off your remade / refurbished / repurposed work,
- learn about some amazing ways members of your community are remaking the world,
- unload gift-related clutter and think about new ways to work with unwanted objects,
- get your Valentine's Day shopping done, and
- support a great cause*!

So come! And:
- bring your unwanted holiday gifts for a reject gift drive,
- shop for Valentine's gifts and other treasures at BBSC's silent auction,
- represent your own remade work, and
- enjoy an inspiring and educational re-maker mind meld.
