Providence Mayor declares September 10 Makers' Day

The Creative Capital—this name sums up what fuels innovation and progress in Providence. From its educational institutions with strengths in engineering and design to its innovative culture of startups, the people of Providence have been hard at work making things for centuries. We're grateful, excited, and humbled that Mayor Angel Taveras has honored the Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire and the Providence maker community with this proclamation: 

"WHEREAS, human creativity, innovation, and invention enrich our lives by creating useful, inspiring, and provocative experiences and objects; and

WHEREAS, the thousands of innovators, entrepreneurs, designers, and other makers in Providence have a rich history that goes back to the founding days of this City and this state; and

WHEREAS, the institutions of art, education, and commerce in Providence have long been associated with the creative and inventive arts; and

WHEREAS, RI Mini Maker Faire brings families from across the state together to experience the joys of invention and creation; and

WHEREAS, the creations and accomplishments of the makers participating in RI Mini Maker Faire deserve acknowledgment and celebration; 

Now, Therefore, Do I, Angel Taveras, Mayor of the City of Providence, Hereby Proclaim Saturday, September 10, 2011, Makers' Day in the City of Providence."
