Believe it – another year has come and gone! Did you complete all your 2018 resolutions? Kick it up a notch this year with us as we programme a series of empowering events to better yourself, while bettering the environment too!
Say “Hello Future!” in January 2019 and goodbye to bad habits that die hard. Yipee-ki-yay!
Week 3: What is Reality?
As we dive into 2019 at a hopefully steadier pace, lets start with a challenge: a reality check! In the third installment of the Hello Future series, families are welcome to try our sensory deprivation obstacle course and DIY Virtual Reality Glasses (Google Cardboard) workshop, and join us this long weekend for some Thaipusam fun!
Book your spot now!
Seen those videos of people pouring paint onto a spinning canvas and want to try it yourself? Now you can, at Me.reka! Create your own version of this experimental and creative artwork called spin art – and have fun with friends and our staff while you’re at it!
A beautiful hands-on experience with string. Start by deciding on the design and nail it down. After that the fun begins, you get to wind the string over and over again to form the desired pattern. In conjunction with Thaipusam, the theme of the string art will be in relation with it.
Sand art is really popular, but have you tried making art with a sand pendulum? Join us this this Thaipusam for an interactive experience to create amazing geometrical patterns with sand, and make your mark on our giant sand art installation!
Week 2: Fix It!
We’re entering the second week of 2019 - are you still holding onto things in the past? Welcome change by fixing things up; whether it's upcycling, fixing your habits, or opening your mind to new experiences and perspectives.
In conjunction with International Thank You Day, we will be hosting a Public Potluck dinner and food drive. You can also post notes on our Tree of Gratitude, and create gifts from leftover materials at our Treasure our Trash corner.
Go ahead and start fixing things up – our Kaki Repair, Repurpose, Refashion, and robot repair workshops enable you to repair and fix up items whilst the Clothes Swap lets declutter and refresh your wardrobe. Deepen your knowledge with our documentary screenings: The True Cost and FIXED & REUSE.
Kids especially love tinkering and fixing, enrol them in the Chumbaka After School Programme if they love computing; or the Mechanical Engineering for Kids programme if they are more physics-inclined.
Head on to the events’ pages for more details!
Week 1: Reset. Restart. Refresh.
Leave all the bad in 2018, take only the good, and install a turbo engine on it. Here's what's in store for you to reset, restart, and refresh. Go!
Create a beautiful piece of rustic art DIY clock to keep yourself punctual this year. Or write a letter to your future self and seal it inside a specially designed laser-cut box for a blast from the past when you open it ten, fifteen or twenty years from now!

In What Direction is the Future Headed? Join us for a screening of a selection of TED talks on the future of everything from cars to the Internet to the human species. If you are feeling nostalgic instead, celebrate the future with a trip to the past! Apollo 11 VR is the story of the greatest journey ever taken by humankind. This virtual reality experience is a recreation of the events which took place between July 16th and July 24th 1969. Now for the first time ever you get to experience this historic event through the eyes of those who lived through it.
