MAKE SMTHNG Week is an international festival of events that encourages people to engage their creative skills, community spirit and the power of social experience. Instead of spending the Christmas and end- of-the-year season shopping, we want to come together in communities around the world to make something! In 2017, tens of thousands of people took part in MAKE SMTHNG Week events across 33 countries on 6 continents, to practically learn fun and creative alternatives to shopping for new things.
In 2018, MAKE SMTHNG Week (MSW) will continue to bring together people and families from all walks of life and showcase how we can share, upcycle, care for and repair our goods. Through making and doing it ourselves, we 
can transform these old things into something new and awesome together!
Each year, we use up more natural resources than the planet can reproduce, from fashion and tech, to food, single-use plastic, toys and cars, we are producing and consuming too much. We need to find a way to create a cultural sea change where we truly value our goods again and keep them for as long as we can. Many of us have already rediscovered the art, craft and joy of making and the power of coming together in our communities to share skills, experience and knowledge. MAKE SMTHNG Week is a time for us to connect and unite in order to strengthen and mainstream inspiring solutions and alternatives to overconsumption.
