Access Notes

We're on the 11th floor, come on up. Non-members park bikes outside the building. Paid car parking is connected to the building, and a SmartPark is two blocks away near Target. Located on SW 10th and Washington, between Target and Powell's, on the big block of food carts. We're on the Streetcar line, a block from the Red and Blue MAX lines, and a 5-minute walk from the Green, Yellow, Orange lines.



Collective Agency turned 5 years old on June 15th (first planning meeting) and August 1st (opened as our own location). A lot has happened in 5 years: we've been an experiment in workplace democracy with optional participation, making here like our ideal city or village. We've hosted more than 200 tech events open to the public listed on Calagator (more than any venue except Free Geek, Lucky Lab and New Relic), and many more non-tech events (over 1,000 paid meetings, and around 1,200 member lunches). We've won awards as a coworking place and a workplace democracy.

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

If you RSVP at https://www.facebook.com/groups/collectiveagency/ or http://www.meetup.com/Collective-Agency-community-workplace/ or Twitter @CollectiveAgenC with the 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, then that's great.

Schedule: • 9am – Open for free • 12pm – Optional potluck lunch • 5pm – End of Open House

People here for free will have access to the big loft room, the kitchen, and restrooms, but not: conference rooms or locker storage. You can come in groups of up to 14 people. There are no age restrictions.

The community guidelines are the core of the terms of service: http://collectiveagency.co/community-guidelines
