What we're about
Inviting all you makers, creatives, artists, and DIY'ers out there who are interested in sharing their skills with others, learning something new, or just enjoy being around creative people & activities.
With the internet full of 'how-to's' a lot of information IS free, but reading a website is not as enriching of a learning experience as a hands-on event where you can meet people and make friends :)
I'm also building up a tool library at XCHC, could be useful. I have 24hr access to the venue and know what dates/times it is free and is used for other events. But I think it would be interesting to visit other public creative/maker spaces around town too. Thoughts? Input welcomed.
• Education is expensive
• Information should be free
• Communities can share: the definition of a "community" is the people of a collective area that share social values and responsibilities--and we often forget to turn to our neighbors"
