Make-End Opens Call for Makers & Ambassadors!
Central Georgia's inaugural maker festival, Make-End, has opened its call for makers! The call invites makers from all backgrounds to submit an application highlighting how they will share their skills and products through interactive exhibits at Make-End. The event is seeking to host 150 makers with a range of innovations in the art and technology fields.
The Make-End Ambassador program is also recruiting those interested in making the festival a success by promoting the event to communities locally, regionally and nationally. The program has three phases: Ambassadors will first learn about the Maker Movement, next they will focus on marketing the event, then Ambassadors will volunteer at Make-End.

Macon Made Spotlights
The Alliance is super excited to announce a new project in collaboration with Love Dot Photography and Andy Carter Photography. Months ago we found a great independent video spotlighting a local business Downtown. We were so impressed, we decided to reach out to these young creatives to help profile other businesses around Macon that serve as points of pride for the city and host them at MaconMade.com.
Check out their first two profile of Macon Beer Company and Ingelside Village Pizza and revisit often to meet more folks making in Macon!
