Leadership :: Board Member of Freeside Atlanta, 501(c)3 Non-Profit

About :: Freeside Atlanta (est. 2009) is a 501(c)3 non-profit workspace built entirely by volunteer hackers + strives to provide a space that inspires collaboration, creativity, teaching, and open projects for the Atlanta community.

Located just south of downtown Atlanta, we are a community of makers, tinkerers, engineers, programmers, artists, teachers, and lunatics. As a community, we have built out our space with tools and equipment for electronics, 3D printing, woodworking, metalworking, art, design, classes, and events. Everything you see in our space was donated or built by members. Our members are engaged in amazing projects and love to share their knowledge of making and hacking. We also develop and work with open source and free technology wherever possible, and try to release our creations under variants of the Creative Commons license.

 

Marketing + Community Organizing

In an effort to grow + diversify programming, Streetcat has worked with several members to develop regular classes hosted at Freeside as well as reached outside of the traditional maker network to encourage creatives of all background to thrive in the space.
