Its doors welcome organizations, experts, and makers from all walks of life to galvanize collaborative social innovation. Me.reka has designed, created, and curated a 12,000ft² space that facilitates access to industry experts, state-of-the-art tools, and educational modules. Our flagship makerspace is a public space in Publika that hosts Fabrication, Textile, Virtual Reality, Design, Energy, Electronic, and Open Source Kitchen labs. The Me.reka Makerspace is one that cultivates creativity, play, and craft. We believe that a makerspace is a place that draws not only those with the determination to realize their idea but also one that engages individuals to discover the desire to create within them. The Me.reka Makerspace is home to a talented bunch of innovators and makers such as Biji Biji Ethical Fashion, Ignition Lab, Plant iOS, and Food Lab. A cross-disciplinary playground of productivity, Me.reka welcomes various makers and organizations to utilise the makerspace.
