Sponsors – Liverpool 2019

The Festival of Maintenance 2019 will be made possible by our wonderful sponsors. We’re deeply grateful to all of the following organisations for their support.

Maker Assembly

Maker Assembly is a gathering of makers. We aim to make a home for critical discussion about maker culture: its meaning, politics, history and future.

Software Sustainability Institute

The Software Sustainability Institute is a national facility for building better software. We help researchers to introduce software into their research or improve the software they already use.


MakeSpaceLive is a project born out of a desire to stream the live events hosted at DoES Liverpool in the easiest and most open way. Our goal is to use Open Source hardware and software to build an online platform for makerspaces and others to collaborate. This is still very much a work in progress – if you’d like to help out then all of our code and documentation can be found on GitHub.


Kickstarter helps artists, musicians, filmmakers, designers, and other creators find the resources and support they need to make their ideas a reality. To date, tens of thousands of creative projects — big and small — have come to life with the support of the Kickstarter community.

IT Jobs Watch

Since 2004, IT Jobs Watch has published free demand-side labour market insights including technology skill set trends, salary/contractor rate benchmarking and real-time job vacancy statistics.

Thank you for your support, without which the Festival would not be possible.
