Snapshot of Maker Party 2013

Maker Parties were held in 330 cities across the globe. Some places, like Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire, held their first ever party, while others like New York City threw more than 400 separate events!

Popcorn Maker projects proved to be the most popular tool, and more than 35,000 Popcorn videos were created. Thimble was a hit as well, and more than 15,000 webpages were created or remixed with the easy-to-use tool.

Maker Party received a lot of love from the media including a great video about Makers by TVO and a write-up in Dazed.

While we’re certainly excited by these facts and figures, we’re most proud to have been a part of an event that resulted in reactions like these:

"The fact that I could deconstruct [a video] meant that I could take it apart and see it in the parts that it is. It makes me think about it and understand what it is, and understand what the person who made it is trying to tell me, and I can play with it and change the message even more…which really empowers me." – Diego Share-Vargas, Maker Party participant, age 13
