Collaboratory in Gothenburg is currently going through some changes. Due to lack of support from the region and city, as well as lack of a will to collaborate in the Lindholmen area, we have cancelled our contract and moved out. The space is taken over by the Science Park and we have no association with their activities. We are grateful for the support from the film studio and wish them the best of luck. The non-profit organisation does no longer have a possibility to support all the individuals that found value in the space and community. We ask people who are looking for internships, refugee support, kids activities, tech support etc to contact the region and city, they are the ones who decided that the space is not needed in Gothenburg so please direct your thoughts directly to them. We have tried to explain why this space is important for years but are now fed up with the entire structure and will no longer waste time on them.
Our design collective is available for funded projects as usual, and our events go on as usual. As a business and game lab Collaboratory is now looking for a space closer to the city center where more people and organisations contribute to the costs. The concept is also being franchised to other cities and a guide book on how to design creative spaces like this, and about maker, game and innovation culture will be released in Nov 2016.
