Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Lifestyle -

THE FIRST-EVER Maker Faire Is­tan­bul is set to bring Turkey’s tin­kers to­gether at the city’s his­toric Hay­darpaşa Train Sta­tion be­tween Oct. 27 and Oct. 29.

As part of the Do It Your­self (DIY) move­ment, the or­ga­niz­ers have in­vited am­a­teur in­ven­tors, stu­dents, busi­ness­men and en­trepreneurs to present their ideas and cre­ations at the fes­ti­val.

More than 15,000 vis­i­tors are ex­pected to join the fair that will show­case per­sonal cre­ations as well as hold live mu­sic events, drone races, art in­stal­la­tions, live street per­for­mances, work­shops, panel ses­sions on ro­bot­ics and art.

‘DO IT YOUR­SELF’

DIY is the method of build­ing, mod­i­fy­ing or re­pair­ing things with­out the direct aid of ex­perts or pro­fes­sion­als.

The DIY move­ment is a re-in­tro­duc­tion of the old pat­tern of per­sonal in­volve­ment and use of skills in the up­keep of a house or apart­ment, mak­ing clothes; main­te­nance of cars, com­put­ers, web­sites; or any ma­te­rial as­pect of liv­ing.

Although the move­ment be­gan in the U.S. decades ago, it has been re­vived thanks to the short DIY videos on so­cial me­dia.
