Event description
A queer virtual coworking space dedicated to focusing on creative projects.

About this event

Focus/Time is a dedicated virtual space for LGBTQIA folks to work on their personal and/or work projects in an accepting environment. It’s the perfect place to work on projects you’ve been putting off or to start the projects that have been incubating in your mind. This is a space for you to focus on the things you want to do but struggle to do. 

The Format: 

We will begin with short introductions, who we are, where we’re tuning in from, and what we’ll be working on. We will have two 40-50 minute blocks of focus-time with a short bio-break in between. We will end the session with updates on what we accomplished and have some social time for those who want to socialize :) 

We ask that all participants adhere to our Code of Conduct: http://bit.ly/ftcodeofconduct

The Platform:

We will be using Zoom for this event. You will receive the login details in a separate email after registering through Eventbrite. 

Who is this for? 

This space was created for those who identify as LGBTQIA. Why? Even though there are many other co-working spaces out there for the general public, we wanted to create a space where we can feel comfortable being ourselves. Many of the people who join these sessions navigate life with ADHD/ADD and the structured time has increased their ability to focus.
