MakerHood was invited to take part in Otara Park Jam 2016, run and organised by a local initiative “Accelerating Auckland”.

The Park Jam saw local artists, musicians, and organisations collaboratively expose young South Aucklanders to creative industries. Many of these workshops had a strong emphasis on technology, many of whom had game creation, robotics processing, and 3D- printing technology.

Located within a main threshold to the towncentre, MakerHood had image editing, electrical repair, and 3D printing workshops that engaged directly with the Otara community.
