Chicago Design Workshops Message Board › Introducing CivicLab - a Civic Co-Working and Makerspace!
|Benj. N. S.||
I'm new here, but here none the less to announce that CivicLab, a Civic co-working and makerspace is now open!
CivicLab is a space that brings together a community organizers, educators, designers, makers, artists, and technologists to co-work, research, teach, build community and create tools. Together, we work to increase civic engagement, foster direct participation and empower neighborhoods. CivicLab offers a space for co-working, classes, community events, and MeetUps. We have co-working space at great rates, and offer classes and events as well.
We've gots to get some design love in here! Design is a crucial and often left out of the conversation in community improvement efforts. In addition to co-workers in the space, we'd love to have any teachers on all aspects of design. We're open to all ideas!
