A decision was made by the Corrimal Revitalisation Action Group, involving Neighbourhood Forum 4, Corrimal Chamber of Commerce and residents, to hold such a festival every two years.

This year organisers are expecting up to 6000 people at Creative Corrimal. The highlights will be a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Roadshow and Illawarra’s first Makerspace made possible by a cultural grant from Wollongong City Council. “Makerspaces have been taking Europe and America by storm,” chamber president Paul Boultwood said.

On Thursday Modfab's Ben Roberts gave Valerie Hussain and Keira and Jade Boultwood a glimpse of what will be at Corrimal from 10am and 4pm this Saturday. They visited University of Wollongong where they saw creative 3D printed objects and virtual reality.
