We are an informal and diverse hackers' collective based in Vilnius, Lithuania. We write code, play in bands, design and make open hardware, grow vegetables and cats, research galaxies, weld things together, build houses, blow things up, fix cars, work in theatres and on fishing boats, organise open-air festivals, teach in universities, make pottery, brew beer, keep bees and administrate servers.

We are creating and developing a local technical community hub guided by the same ethos as the global network of hackerspaces and makerspaces: free and unrestricted sharing of knowledge, active participation and inclusivity.

At the moment we operate at a 400 sq. m. space that is already too small for the workshops, tools and machines and for all the projects. Some of us work there, making theatre decorations and custom machinery or handmade furniture. The others come to work on their projects: restoring an old Mercedes van, a small boat, fixing or welding a bike. Several members are making prototypes: testing a professional camera-stabilising system, designing pyrolysis apparatus that would convert plastic waste to fuel, a small telescope tracking system.

We are looking for an affordable industrial space with running water/electricity/other infrastructure -- if you have any ideas or hints, let us know! 1000-1500 sq. m. would be enough for metalwork, carpentry and machine shops, ceramics, jewellery and silkscreening studios, electronics and hardware workshops, industrial painting, bicycle and automobile repair zones, a chemistry lab, a computer class and a social area.
