In my humble opinion, “Entertainment” is highly over-rated. It is too easy in your modern world to just sit back and watch others do things. Perhaps it’s time to live a little less vicariously, and become one of the real creators in your world.
Of course, if you’re already a Steampunk maker, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
And that’s what Aethertopia is all about. The Nomadic City of Makers isn’t about sitting and watching, but about learning and doing. It’s about building and making. In short, it is the embodiment of Steampunk inspiration. Between the workshops, the symposiums, and the ongoing demonstrations by professional makers of all types, you will come out of this event with experience and confidence, rather than just entertainment for entertainment’s sake.
And if you’re already an accomplished maker, and you want an opportunity to display your best work, then by all means make sure you submit your creation to the appropriate Steampunk Makers Guild for inclusion in the show! Click here for a description of the different Guilds, and then get your submission in. There are a limited number of spots within each Guild, and multiple prizes will be awarded based on both the audience and a panel of independent expert Steampunk judges.
See you in the future!
