"Libraries Today & Tomorrow:
Incubators for Community, Business & Culture"
with Geoff DiMasi - the founder of the web and software design company P’unk Ave, co-founder of the co-working space Indy Hall and co-founder and curator of the idea sharing series Ignite Philly.
Indy Hall, one of the earliest coworking spaces, known for incubating community with the goal of making Philadelphia a better place to live, work, and learn. Due to its success in creating a truly engaged and participatory membership interested in being good citizens in their neighborhood, Indy Hall has become the model emulated worldwide.
Geoff will share what he has learned by cultivating a coworking community and how public, school, academic and special libraries can apply this model.
