Digital technology innovations tend to secure knowledge in the hands of a limited number of institutions and corporations, but Indonesian group Critical Making adheres to the principle of openness, organised through citizen initiation and run by grassroots-level collectives, to create physical objects much like how the open-source movement allows for innovations in software. Each individual has the right and access to knowledge and the process of creating with materials and technology. In Indonesia, collectives play an important role as the driving force of the cultural sector and as catalysts for social and economic development. However, even though these collectives are open to any gender, female and nonbinary gender participation in open science and citizen science movements are still relatively small and imbalanced. Moreover, in the digital technology industry at large, true inclusion remains lacking, as women, trans people, and children are “included” as mere users and consumers. This non-inclusive creation process creates inequality and stifles true innovation. Domestic Hacking intervenes by involving women, trans people, and children in making and hacking.
