The Makerspace fosters innovation, creativity, and community empowerment through the exploration of emerging technologies in an inclusive and collaborative space. The Makerspace is built on principles of interdisciplinary learning, community empowerment, autonomy, and agency. We foster a strong sense of community by providing first-hand access to emerging technologies to community members. The Makerspace is positioned as a collaborative and synthesizing bridge between the Maldives’ renowned traditional artisan maker culture and the emerging technological industry (ie. Industry 4.0).
