Welcome to Nightowl!

Night Owl is the first Hackerspace/Arts and Technology Incubator in Dumaguete City. It is a place in which people with an interest in computing or technology gather together to work on projects while being able to share ideas, being able to use different kinds of equipments, being able to share knowledge and being able to communicate well to co-nightowlers.



To provide the needed enabling environment, facilities and mentors for the youth and the community to have the right resources and tools for them to be able to ideate, create and innovate in addressing different issues of the local community with the integration of technology.

In exchange, share the knowledge that is acquired to the community and collaborate with the different members.


To establish a mindset of independent learning, creativity and innovation into our local community's culture and to be embedded and adapted as a standard in the way we learn.
