One of our stated goals when building Co|Operative has been to support and expose (in a non telephoto-lens stalker sort of way) local artists, creatives, makers and the like to the local community. At our open house in January, we were happy to be able to promote and share so many vendors that were from the surrounding area.
Over the longer term we intend to create a shared studio space to go along with our Coworking space and create a true artist-entrepreneur collective.
But in the meantime, we want to know WHO is out there; WHAT they are doing, and HOW we can work together.
So here's the ask. Share this with anyone you know who makes awesome stuff. Whether it's their full time gig, a hobby or just some amazing ideas they draw and sketch but never get around to making...we want to know about them.
As part of the existing space we have made a point to use local talent in building our desks, tables and so on. Now we want local artists and makers to add that all important art on a rotating basis.
Because a creative space without art is....ehhh.
