Maker's Asylum

Mumbai, India
Maker’s Asylum is a community space focussed on fostering innovation through hands on learning. It also provides access to an ecosystem of stakeholders which includes Governments, Businesses, Incubators/Accelerators, Investors and subject matter experts. The space houses various labs that are co-located in order facilitate prototyping of ideas that are interdisciplinary in nature.
Introduction

What do we do?

“I’d like to make the skills and resources available to people to start solving their problems and eventually help India to come out with more and more indigenous products.”

Vaibhav Chhabra, Founder - Maker's Asylum

Maker’s Asylum is focussed on driving community engagement under our two verticals - Access to Infrastructure (via tools/equipment) and Access to Education (under the brand of STEAM School). Maker’s Asylum Junior is also an integrated part of our community space and will focus on alternative learning for kids. Our goal is to eventually become an Open University where crazy ideas can thrive and break the barriers of traditional thought/methodology of education.

This space started out of a garage in Bandra (Mumbai) 5 years ago, in fact one of the first makerspaces in the country and has now become a popular community space to build prototypes, products etc and also houses the community of artists, designers, engineers who are building indigenous products.

Tips for implementation
If you have an open space available and some budget to bring in basic equipment such as 3D printers, laser cutter, power tools, hand tools you can set up a maker space! It can be set up in the back of your office (that is where we started) to a whole building.
