At the heart of The HackSpace is a community. One that serves and includes everybody.
The HackSpace is not just a workshop, a co-working environment or a MakerSpace, it is a community hub. Without you guys bringing your skills, your ambition and enthusiasm, without your knowledge and expertise, The HackSpace is just home to a bunch of (really cool and expensive) tools.
We want to build a community of people, all united in STEAM! creating awesome projects for fun and for function. We engage with various local groups that offer support to marginalised and vulnerable people as well people experiencing financial hardship. We are trying to build something incredible for Peterborough but we can't do that without you.
We want you to feel super welcome and comfortable in The HackSpace and we will do all we can to ensure this. Please don't hesitate with suggestions or grievances, The HackSpace and the community it serves is all about you!
We at The HackSpace also believe that as a community, we should all involve ourselves in building strong bonds and connections with each other. We should help each other and provide support to those that need it, and we should most definitely provide a space that allows people to work and play in the most satisfying, safe and friendly environment.
"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about." – Margaret J. Wheatley
We want to build a truly connected and happy city. To do this, we must first find a common cause or project and collaborate with our differences left at the door. From this, we form lifelong friendships and create some cool stuff along the way.
