The Steampunk Workshop | Technology & Romance - Fashion, Style, & Science Online : Maker Faire: M.T. Pockets Traveling Midway of Curiosities and Delights One of the group installations coming to this year’s Maker Faire Bay Area, taking place on May 22nd and 23rd at the San Mateo Fairgrounds, is M.T. Pockets Traveling Midway of Curiosities and Delights. A nostalgic throw-back to carnivals of old, this exhibit is a self-contained window into yesteryear, when the carnival would roll into town and create a magical environment. We conversed with Marcus Guillard of One Hat One Hand Productions for some insight, and it’s clear this crew walks the walk. 1. Tell us about the project(s) you’re bringing to Maker Faire. M.T. M.T.

Tickets | It is our extraordinary pleasure to invite you to take your place within Occultus. We offer an evening wherein dreams become, not realities, but a trickier thing – larger, darker, sweeter figments of the mind, and we give you an opportunity to step inside them. Enter the nether spaces of Occultus, and let yourself be taken away, for the evening, by goblin minds and strange souls. We invite the curious, the playful, the phantasmic; we invite you, whether you come to watch, or to throw yourself into the action! We invite you to be surprised, amused, disconcerted, and delighted. We invite you to become one of us. Your most exclusive invitation awaits. Purchase your tickets today – because Occultus, like all things in the realm between idea and reality, may vanish tomorrow…. UPDATE: For all VIP orders placed after July 6th – the invitation to the seances are since sold out. UPDATE: As of today, July 10th – VIP pre-orders are now closed.

To this end, the NPHC promotes the well-being of its affiliate fraternities and sororities, facilitates the establishment and development of local councils of the NPHC, and provides leadership training for its constituents. The council's purpose is to promote unity and expose members to the "service for life" philosophy and foster leadership development and scholarship among the “Divine Nine” chapters which belong to the NPHC.
