MATIC HUB is a sustainable and multi-disciplinary enabling space for Cebu’s creative community. In a drive to become increasingly relevant to the ever-changing landscape of Cebu’s creative sector, MATIC evolves to provide a platform for start-ups, communities and youth organizations to collaborate with experienced stakeholders in academe, industry and government.
MATIC has three main features:
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.
This is the show window, which will regularly highlight a special setting of sustainable technology, innovated materials, and material application to product design.
This is a meeting room available for brainstorming, creative and scientific linkage project presentation, and creative discussions.
The MATERIALS LIBRARY, which is a joint collaboration amongst MATIC partner, Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Cebu Furniture Industries Foundation (CFIF) and Cebu Gifts Toys and Housewares (Cebu GTH), is at the core of the APP ZONE.
Launched in 2014, MATIC began under the Materials R+D Program 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 supported by the Department of Science and Technology Region 7 (DOST 7) in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). It is in collaboration with the Cebu Furniture Industries Foundation (CFIF), Cebu GTH, FAME Foundation and AFOS.
MATIC HUB is located at DOST 7 Banilad S and T Complex along Gov. M. Cuenco Avenue in Banilad, Cebu City.
