We will be rebooting soon.
Started as a bi-monthly meetup group in 2013, the 'Singapore Makers' has grown to become the private advocate of the local maker movement. Operating with support from the OneMaker Group Pte Ltd and later on to its own incorporation as a company limited by guarantee, we have been involved in a number of maker events locally as well as regionally. Over the last few years we are heartened by the acceptance of this nascent culture by general public and the government concerning 'Making' especially in fostering interest in STEM education, innovation and enterprise. We believe that the time is ripe to make 'Making' into a more inclusive and mainstream activity. We are poised with take on this challenge through a strong social angle, working with other partners and sponsors who are committed to support out cause. As such we will be undergoing restructuring and reboot 'Singapore Makers' into a new revamped entity.
2017 will be an exciting year. Watch this space!
Who we Are
We are a not-for-profit organisation that represent Makers in advocating ‘bottom-up’ creativity and inventiveness by promoting technical, scientific, and artistic skills through encouraging creative, inventive and cultural expressions in Singapore. In addition, we hope to establish best practice framework for an emerging creative industry that is technological-centric through a tripartite network of citizens, companies and the government.
As a bottom-up community, we are thankful for the efforts made by others to grow the maker movement in Singapore to what it is today. Special thanks goes to Maker Media for kickstarting an awesome brand of events and activities that inspires many of us to create our own events. We are also thankful to the Science Centre Singapore for introducing the first Singapore Mini Maker Faire. In addition to government agencies such as SPRING, DesignSingapore Council and IDA who have been very supportive to drive the maker & innovation culture in Singapore.
We are Makers
"..so continue making, continue tinkering, continue innovating, continue sharing; hit us with your best deals. You will find and I hope that we will be able to prove, that Singapore is the best place in the world to be a maker, an inventor, an artist, a poet - a person who combines arts, science, technology and culture.."
