Mobile Makers

In 2015 the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research at the University of Canberra submitted an Australian Research Council Linkage Infrastructure and Equipment Fund grant to establish a major new research facility, the first travelling creative digital research laboratory in Australia. Mobile Makers establishes a new network of 14 researchers from 9 organisations, together with 10 members of STEM & STEAM reference groups to create a major national research facility.

The research converges in four themes: Innovation & Entrepreneurship; Participatory CuratorshipFuture Heritage & Materialised Narratives.

Mobile Makers aims to experiment with innovative digital design and manufacturing processes, engaging especially with the Small-to-Medium Enterprise sector and craft-based designers and producers.

Through this experimentation, Mobile Makers will encourage entrepreneurship and industry-linkages across a network of practitioners holding local know-how which is currently distributed tacitly around regional as well as metropolitan Australia.

The Mobile Makers network is dedicated to accessing and disseminating specialist knowledge and creative practices in location-specific industries and craft practices presently isolated around the country.

The core members of the network are: The University of Canberra; CBR Innovation Network; Curtin University; Australian National Maritime Museum; Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences; University of NSW; University of South Australia; RMIT University; and Questacon.
