Singapore Makers: Past. Present. Future
A showcase by SG Makers Association (SGMA) at the Maker Faire Singapore 11-12 July 2015
SGMA will be curating a special showcase on the Past, Present and Future of the Maker Movement in Singapore. There will be display of various past and present maker activities that started since the first Singapore Mini Maker Faire in 2012 till date. We will also be exploring what the future holds for makers who are looking at making as a sustainable livelihood.
The Maker Academy (TMA)
The democratization of technology and the rise of smart devices are beginning to change the way students learn and teachers teach in schools. Big words like 'IoT', 'Rapid Prototyping' and 'Big Data' are beginning to inundate the education system globally. In this regard, how can educators prepare themselves to transit from being a dispenser to co-facilitator/creator of knowledge.
TMA is a new maker education initiative that will enable and empower educators to design and facilitate purposeful making experience for their students.
As a community project that is allied to the maker education initiative, Repair Kopitiam aims to combat the buy-and-throw-away culture in Singapore and to create a more sustainable future. This is accomplished by bringing the community together, sharing repair experiences and propagating the repair culture. Visitors are also invited to take part in the Repair Kopitiam activity at the Maker Faire facilitated by the Sustainable Living Lab (SL2).

InnovAsean: SEA Makerspace Summit
On 5-7th June, we will be receiving many overseas delegates from the region to the Southeast Asia Makerspace Summit to be held in the National Design Centre, Singapore from 5-7 June 2015. Titled InnovAsean, this inaugural invite-only Summit will see 50 key decision-makers and influencers involved in makerspace operations from the eight ASEAN member nations coming together for the purpose of sharing knowledge and matters about growing the Maker movement in their respective countries and communities through makerspaces. The three-day Summit is organized by the SG Makers Association Ltd and the OneMaker Group with the support of the DesignSingapore and IDA.
Bread-and-butter issues which directly affects makerspace operations such financial sustainability, growth and creation of economic and social impact to the local community will be deliberated. There will be opportunities create to learn, work and play collaboratively. We hope to forge ties of friendship and camaraderie in working towards establishing a formal 'ASEAN Makerspace Network' to grow the maker economy from the bottom-up.
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.."

We bring people together to achieve something greater.
Since 2013 we have been actively bringing people together through regular events such as meet ups, exhibitions and tours. Over time we want to be involved in driving business and work opportunities for makers in Singapore and beyond.
We organize regular information seminars, meet-ups and networking events to connect makers who share similar pursuits and interests.
We organize regular tech workshops to grow interests in science, technology and engineering as a maker career.
We organize regular business trips for entrepreneur-makers to develop international partnerships to grow their business.
We organize regular exhibitions through our partners to showcase maker projects. There is also an annual flagship maker convention to bring the public and makers together for a weekend of family-friendly conference, exhibition and play.
We gather regional key influencers in the maker movement annually to share their ideas, experience and aspirations to advocate and grow the maker movement in their own localities.
