i3Detroit: Imagine, Innovate & Inspire

i3Detroit is a collaborative environment for people to explore the balance between technology, art, and culture. We feel the best way to create this environment is to bring together like-minded people who share a common passion for technology, art and culture. We work to make the world a more interesting place.

The community is run by its members through voting. All founding members have worked together to create a set of by-laws that all members and supporters follow. The goal is to provide a safe and fun community environment.

Our goal is to stay a community resource through continuous hosting of various classes and events. We have created an environment that promotes learning in a fun non-traditional format.

i3Detroit is continually working with other hackerspaces and community organizations to work on projects, events and educational opportunities.

How we fund the project

We fund the project through our Membership dues, Sponsorships, Fundraisers and Donations. All proceeds go towards paying the rent, utilities, insurance, and tools. All financial decisions are voted on by members with voting rights.

Our Purposes

  • To continue to build, maintain and grow our physical space suitable for technical, art and social collaboration.
  • Collaborate on all forms of technology, art and culture in new and interesting ways.
  • Freely share its research and discoveries, using what is learned to teach others.
  • Recruit and develop talented members dedicated to these purposes.
  • To share knowledge, information and our crafts with other members and our communities.

i3Detroit is a 501(c3) organization which will allow us to receive donations to aid us in meeting our purposes.

Our Inspirations

i3Detroit has been inspired by the many Hacker Spaces that have been created through out the globe such as Noisebridge, NYC Resistor, Cowtown Computer Congress, c-base, and Pumping Station: One.
