A little about usA community gathering place

Hackerspaces are community-operated physical places, where people share their interest in tinkering with technology, meet and work on their projects, and learn from each

Does that quote sound familiar? It should! It's the mantra of, a collective resource for hackerspaces around the world. We consider it our mission statement as well: SkullSpace exists to promote and facilitate a community space that achieves the same goals.

Our Story

In 2010, a group of friends in Winnipeg saw a need for creating a community group around the idea of hacking and hackerspaces. From this idea SkullSpace was born, and we began with meetings at the LoPub in downtown Winnipeg before we took the big step and acquired our first physical space at 125 Adelaide Street. It's been a learning experience for us since day one, but we're proud to say that we've built a thriving community of hackers, makers, tinkerers, developers, artists, and everything in between! We're excited that you're interested in SkullSpace, and we encourage you to get involved, either by attending one of our Open Nights every Tuesday from 6-8 PM, or through attending one of our numerous events, or donating.
