Introducing CivicLab - a Civic Co-Working and Makerspace!

Hello Refresh Chicaog!

I'm here 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 and web development love in here! Design can play a crucial role in developing community improvements interventions, specifically those that engage communities in co-design. Web development also plays an important role in the field not just as a device for communication, but as a tool for more direct participation in civic life. 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!

You can find more information here: http://www.civiclab.u...­ or by emailing us at info [at symbol]
