Find out more about our collaborations and how we work together with them.
Maker Library Network (MLN) which a British Council project commissioned as part of Connect ZA, a programme running throughout 2014 & 15 which aims to create connections between young creatives and audiences in the UK and South Africa.
Conceived by Daniel Charny and developed with From Now On, the MLN is a new initiative that promotes collaboration and knowledge-sharing between designers and makers.
The programme will culminate with an event to showcase the achievements of the first year, with the ambition to expand into a world-wide network.
We are developing a Maker curriculum with Ikasi Youth Project based on the TEN Project. Ultimately we want this to be a “Gap Year” alternative for the graduates from the Everyday Heroes Club.
The Everyday Heroes Club (Ikasi Youth’s flagship initiative) is a practical, results-oriented, holistic after school program whose aim is to drive positive change in the Imizamo Yethu township community of Hout Bay, South Africa. It provides a support structure and safe working environment for 20 high school boys, with the aim to help them discover and realise their true potential.
A collaboration with Cedric Samson and Workspace.
These drums are being made by people from the Workspace community in collaboration with well known drummer, Cedric Samson.
The MoHappy drums form part of the Workspace non profit outreach which seeks to provide economic opportunities for the disadvantaged.
Workspace, Hout Bay
Workspace is proudly the fifth Maker Library in the World – Alongside other Maker Libraries in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Cape Town, we have been recognized for our creative and edgy thinking. Our interpretation has culminated in the “Travelling Wheel- brary”. Using old cable drums, this structure will ultimately contain a webcam and screen along with shelves to display books. The idea is that the whole of Workspace is the Makerspace component of the Maker Library and therefore the connecting aspect needs to be mobile.
