About

HackRVA is a member run and organized nonprofit makerspace located in Richmond, Virginia.

We provide spacetools, community, and learning opportunities for HackRVA members.

We host workshops which are scheduled on meetup and stay digitally connected through social media, our mailing list, and an irc style messaging system, Slack.

We also post projects and pics around the web to inspire other Richmond makers and those abroad.

Open Hours:

Open house occurs on the first Thursday night of the month for anyone to visit. You don’t need to be a member to hang out. Lots of members will be there to talk to and show you around. If it’s your first time at HackRVA or if you wish to become a member this is the best night to learn about us. Also check the calendar of events. Members will be at the space and the door will be open then as well.

FAQ:

– I read the above, but, what are you exactly, whats going on?

We’re a makerspace/hackerspace(wikipedia).  Sometimes we’re referred to as a gym for the brain, a clubhouse for nerds, a mad-scientists layer, or a preeminent basement . We’re essentially a space filled with tools, computers, and  people interested in knowledge and hands-on experience. Members pay dues and that provides the money to keep the space going. We are run by volunteers who are also members. No one owns the space and everyone contributes as they are able to see it flourish. If you’re interested in a hobby or subject of knowledge that is technology or “makery” related you will likely find comradery here and a place to work on projects.
