The first MakerHood activation took place on Neighbour’s Day 2016, a day where New Zealanders strengthen relationships with their immediate neighbours and local communities.


MakerHood chose to break ground within the Otara towncentre; a thriving community and home to The Roots Creative Collective. Towards the front end of the township is a newly developed public space, but has yet to receive any local projects; this in itself presented Maker Hood (M-H) a good opportunity to implement “Activation 1”.
