The "Open Garage" is a garage in Borsbeek, Belgium, some sort of hackerspace, where I (Anthony Liekens) host weekly workshops and many of my projects. Since November 2011 (3 years!) the garage is open every Thursday evening to everyone who wants to join our community.

Check out some media reviews of the Open Garage:

Just be excellent to each other (principle #1 out of 1), bring a drink, a project and a friend and we're all set.

We have all the tools and basic stock for elementary wood and metal working, electronics gear and misc materials are available to tackle various projects. I also run a ‘nano’ brewery from my garage, try to convert a car to electric, have a printrbot/Wallace++ 3D printer and we are trying to get a professional CNC mill and CNC lathe to work and I want to build a toolset for some DIY biotech, we;re growing mealworms, among many, many other things.

For those that may be new and interested: There's usually a few technology-minded people that drop by on random Thursday evenings with "goesting" to make. Some people bring a project and others bring their skills to collaborate on others' projects. (and there's a lot of nerd talk) If you're into that kind of stuff, feel free to drop by.

It is NOT required for your skills be on a high level, you are NOT required to contribute knowledge; instead, it is encouraged that everyone LEARNS stuff at our gatherings.

There's a wiki to dump your ideas and plans that relate to the garage!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
