MHV Community Meeting
There's a meeting at MHV every Tuesday evening. Mostly these are "Community Meetings" where people can talk about what's happening in the space and the community or raise issues and questions for discussion. Community Meetings are generally informal and members and visitors are free to wander and use the facilities as they like. Please remember that MHV is a workshop, so wear covered shoes. If you aren't a member yet, a donation is appreciated. Leave the money in the fridge.

What we're about

MakeHackVoid is a makerspace and community modeled on an international community of like minded spaces that started in Germany in 1995. It supports and encourages arts, science and technology culture in the ACT by providing a physical space for Canberra residents, as well as national and international visitors to meet, interact and create. Our group includes people with diverse backgrounds and interests, from robot vehicles, brewing and home-automation to games development, 3D printing, information security, electronics, quad-copters, UAVs, and wearable electronics.

MakeHackVoid is dedicated to a harassment-free experience for everyone and our well-equipped space adjacent the Giralang playing fields welcomes visitors and membership starts as low as $0. Check out our main wiki ( or our forum ( for more info, workshops and opportunities to get involved.

Visitors are welcome at any scheduled opening and members can always “do their own” thing in other areas of the space while meetings are underway.

Everyone is welcome - all ages, interests and skill levels. Workshops, special interest group meetings, hack-a-thons and project work by individuals or groups can happen anytime and are generally entered into the MHV Google Calendar ( announced on the forum ( least a few days before they happen.

Because the space is a workshop, you will need to wear covered shoes.

If you are unable to make it to our Maker Meetups, but wish to check out the space, keep an eye out for space openings and drop by some time.

You can check the calendar to see when people will be at space to show you around .
