What is Community Making?

Our philosophy

We believe neighbourhood development is a continuum of hardware and software

Through Community Making, we aspire to advance a software-first model for Generative Community Impact - an intersection where social innovation meets neighbourhood collaboration and community empowerment.

To us, Community Making also represents a shared belief in the power of communities to identify and develop distinctive aspirations in a way that can rise to the social / economic needs of its residents. It calls on all stakeholders, community or institutional players, to play their part in making our neighbourhoods a better place to live, work, and play in.


If the previous era of urban development was all about hardware, the next will be driven by software


Join us as we begin a new era of social renewal with Community Making. And everyone, including you, can be a Community Maker
