Hello Coworking Spaces & Makerspaces!
Do you run or help manage a local Coworking community or Makerspace?
As a new project, we’d really appreciate your ideas for what Coworking Winnipeg should be. Look below for ways to connect.
What is coworking?
Coworking describes independent workers coming together in one place with other independent workers and working side by side. They don’t have to work for the same company or even be doing the same kind of work. Coworkers enjoy the social and collaborative environment that a coworking space can provide while still being able to do their own thing. Coworkers are mostly freelancers, remote workers, small business owners, artists, non-profits, contractors, and other professionals that have the freedom to work wherever they like.
What are makerspaces?
A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools. These spaces are open to kids, adults, and entrepreneurs and have a variety of maker equipment including 3D printers, laser cutters, cnc machines, soldering irons and even sewing machines.
What are collaborative communities?
Curious? A great place to discover some of Winnipeg’s collaborative communities is to visit our Events page, which features upcoming Meetups.
