Come work and have conversations at Collective Agency during our First Fridays Free Days, and join an optional potluck lunch.

Members, come as usual, and you can bring guests, it'll be the same for you as it is every day but with more people here.

All new members and free people are making history or generally being great; take the quiz to see if you qualify. http://collectiveagency.co/quiz/

If you qualify, then there are 2 requirements: 1) RSVP by emailing [email protected] with: your name, what time you expect to be here, what you’ll be working on (you can include a link to a website or social media), and what you’re looking for. This will be posted on our website, RSVP pages, and here on the wall. 2) While you’re here, aside from lunch, you’ll find ways to talk with at least 2 people here for at least 30 minutes total.

Schedule: • 10am – Open for free • 12pm – Optional potluck lunch. • 4pm – End of Open House

People here for free will have access to the big loft room, the kitchen, and restrooms, but not: conference rooms, locker storage, computer monitors. You can come in groups of up to 14 people but everybody has to qualify and do the actions described above. There are no age restrictions.

The community guidelines are the core of the terms of service:

The following applies to the entire Collective Agency community. It is a simple statement of the expectations within which we all work. Please read it with care.

Every society has rules of conduct by which the members of the society agree to abide. - Collective Agency is a society of creative persons who inhabit a common space. - In Collective Agency, individuals are prized for their individuality, but no individual has the right to inflict harm upon others or to destroy or lessen that which should be available to all. - To these ends, the following apply, in the physical workspace and, as applicable, online:

  1. OWN responsibility for your actions.
  2. HOLD each other accountable.
  3. BE an active participant in your membership.
  4. IF needed, confront with respect (how you’d like to be confronted).
  5. HAVE a considerate level of voice (and language). Place cellphones on vibrate.
  6. CLEAN up after yourself.
  7. HELP to keep common areas tidy.
  8. BE mindful of valuables; yours and others.
  9. WHEN informally meeting in common areas, be considerate of other members. Book a meeting room if in doubt.
