Make Change is an annual conference celebrating maker initiatives that take a critical approach to creation and education, bringing together hundreds of curious and engaged people.

Make Change explores the intersections of maker culture and social change, and is in collaboration with Toronto’s month long Maker Festival ( – a volunteer-organized non-profit event that attracts over 12,000 people each year.

This one day event is for professional makers, makerspace organizers, educators and enthusiasts. In past years we have explored project based learning, the intersection of race and makerspace participation, the future of sustainable manufacturing, civic technologies, the involvement of libraries and public institutions in maker culture and so much more.

We’re looking to expand what it means to make, learn and teach, please share your experiences!
