About the Creation Room
The Creation Room is a trial social good initiative created by Adroit Creations in partnership with Promapp and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Environment. It is an open resource for residents of the Hauraki area who are interested in exploring opportunities in the creative and tech industries.
From learning about code and web design to blogging, setting up an online market place to exploring the internet of things and robotics – the Creation Room offers a free, no barriers place to create within the offices of a professional software and consulting company.
No matter what your age, situation or background, provided you have a basic understanding of computers and the internet you can use the Creation Room and its resources at no cost. The Room is open every Monday and Thursday, 10am – 5pm. Visit the Creation Room and explore the opportunities out there or create your own.
Build your own pathway
You no longer need to live in a city or even have a nine to five job to make a living or connect with the world. The internet and creative technology let you create your options. Come and make the most of it. Start your journey at the Creation Room.
You don’t need experience or university degrees, just the desire to learn, create and make the most of the opportunities the internet can offer to residents of rural communities.
Make the world yours
It doesn’t matter how old (or how young) you are, everything you need is provided and if it is not we will try to source it for you. We will even run workshops and classes if you are interested. You can use the Creation Room once or all the time. It is up to you. Make the world yours.

The Creation Room is open every Monday and Thursday from 10am – 5pm. If you would like to talk about an idea or you need a helping hand to get started, come and see us!
A large proportion of the people within the Hauraki district appear to have low access to pathways in the creative technology sector. Providing a means to help reduce barriers to involvement will hopefully improve the economic opportunities and exposure to the opportunities available within the sector.
The goal is to provide a location and network for individuals to access the technology and creative pathways. If people want a space to discover anything from blogging to app building, they can use our offices, equipment and software. We don’t provide hands-on training, but we can point people in the direction of online courses, training and tools. People can also book short appointments to discuss ideas or thoughts with staff.
The Creation Room will also run up to four events a year where we will invite our technology partners and other people to talk about their pathway in the creative technology sector. We are calling these events the Celebration of Dangerous Ideas.
This is a complete trial for us. We are not even sure it will work, but we would like to give it a go.
