Open Works

BARCO's mission is to provide affordable artist's spaces in Station North. One of several projects in the area, they will renovate this existing two-story warehouse structure into a maker space with a retail lobby and cafe. Through a membership model (like a gym), participants gain access to a state-of-the-art digital fabrication shop, wood shop, metal shop, and other tools, as well as a community of creators like themselves.
