MATIC HUB: Enabling Creative Spaces

MATIC HUB is the DOST – Department of Science and Technology’s main support for creative industries.

Launched in 2014, MATIC began under the DOST Region VII Materials R+D Program. MATIC began as a repository of material swatches and resources, a venue of inspiration for design, a link to materials and design experts, and an access point to technology suppliers.

MATIC HUB is composed of an eclectic group that’s deeply rooted and involved in the Creative Cebu Grid. The MATIC Team acts as the connecting hub for organizations who wish to be involved in Cebu’s City of Design initiatives.

RESEARCH

Since 2014, MATIC Hub has partnered with the Department of Science and Technology and other research organizations to produce papers on the local creative economy.

This is a workshop area with the MATERIALS LIBRARY at the heart of it. Material swatches, semi-processed materials and books on design and product development are available in the library for workshop participants and researchers to use and get inspiration from.

PROJECTS

MATIC is constantly on the lookout for project partners. MATIC aligns its project activities with sustainable development goals to ensure no one is left behind.

This is the show window, which will regularly highlight a special setting of sustainable technology, innovated materials, and material application to product design.

EVENTS

MATIC supports local creatives by organizing sessions online and offline. These events encourage participants to cultivate their own creative corner, and up-skill to remain relevant. This is a meeting space for brainstorming, creative and scientific linkage project presentation, and creative discussions.
