Vancouver Hackspace

Vancouver Hack Space provides a physical space where every creative type can gather to share ideas, equipment, and opinions. We aim to create a 24/7 brain gym where members can show up and work on personal projects, consult with friends, and learn new tricks. More than just a studio space with tools, we focus on sharing all sorts of knowledge within a friendly and collaborative atmosphere.

At this point most of our members are hardware and software engineers, many of whom share an interest in microcontrollers, robotics, electronic music, and art.  We welcome anyone with skills to share or an interest in learning.
