We were a photo studio, prop house, and art gallery. Both founders had specific interests in arts and technology. After helping found another local hackerspace and finding it took away from the time and finances from our own space, we realized it was time to take our space to the next level. We are currently deciding how to define ourselves as a makerspace and/or hackerspace. We make stuff and we hack stuff. We teach workshops. We work on community projects. We have performances and shows. We'd like to take it to the next level. Looking at spaces like the hactory in Philly and others around the globe that may help us model the kind of space we will define ourselves as. For now we consider ourselves a "Flexi-Space" with a strong focus on New Media Arts. In the meantime, we are thrilled to have joined another local hackerspace called i3Detroit, and fully intend to stay members there even if our space really gets rolling. Feel free to write us with input or to network.
