How can we reimagine coworking to work for us West Virginians? Is it laptop space and endless coffee? Is it a creative community of folks to bounce ideas off of? Is it a space for the night owls, the early birds, the weekend warriors, or all three? Is it a space to mix kartwheels and Conf calls in equal proportions? Is it mariokart and videocalls? Is it craft tables and coding stations? Is it even a good idea??? Join us Wednesday at MAKESHOP to bounce ideas at our COWORKING MEETUP. Come through 6pm onward !
