Requesting all you to do your best to make the Maker's Space alive in
*Story of Makers Asylum Mumbai* -
"We started about two years ago, operating from a closet-sized garage
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJ0ZtF5wYFY> in the suburbs. We had one 3D
Printer, power and hand tools that were donated by well-wishers. We had a
handful of members that gathered to build tables, simple machines and toyed
around with electronics. People started to share knowledge and materials to
build projects together."
The good part is that we’ve ignited the Maker Movement in India. The bad
part — we’ve lost the space we’ve called home for the last six months. The
design school that let us use a portion of their cafeteria for our
activities needs us to vacate. We have till August 31.
In order to continue feeding the hungry community of Makers, we need to
find a new space to rent, and soon!
For our community, the risk of losing the space means projects being
abandoned midway, practical learning being put on hold and tinkers left
without the access to tools that make their ideas grow.
