Mission

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

Work Less. Build More. Play More. Its our WP_20150330_16_09_05_Pro[1]little catch phrase that is meant to encompass a much more complex ideal. Our goal is to foster a community that spends more time pursuing creative en devours of the mind and heart, inventing and building, and spending a bit more time enjoying the beautiful world we live in. By encouraging more thoughtful, creative interactions we believe everyone has the power to change the world! We are here to share knowledge, build our greatest dreams and laugh the entire time.

How it Works: The Generator is built to be a collection of people, talents and tools. We share our skills, knowledge and resources to help each other build our ideas. At the individual level we are providing a large collection of skills and resources to help you create. In exchange we hope to encourage you to share your skills and resources with the larger community. It’s a bit like a school where everyone is both a student and a teacher. Artists teach carpenters how to paint. Carpenters teach makers how to build. And makers teach artist how to tinker.

“I Have an Idea!” Using The Generator is as simple as coming up with an idea and telling us about it. From there we will discuss with you the time frame in which you need to execute your project and the resources needed. Once we have spoken with you about the project and have confidence that it can get done in a fair timeline we will find you space and you are off to work! Larger projects need a bit more planning (if only we had an infinite amount of space). If you would like to tackle a large group project we need to understand the details of your project in depth. Generally this includes budget, funding, material needs and long term installation plans. Please remember, this is not a storage space. When you are done with your project it is up to you to find a home for it.
