Co-Lab exists at the intersection of work and imagination, a space for commuters to Lewiston, budding social enterprises and non-profits looking for a home, freelancers, consultants and creative folks looking to grow, experiment, explore and build.

Co-Lab community Builders do just that–help us to build out the offerings and amenities of our physical space, while also helping us build a stronger and larger group of teachers, members and creatives. The monthly support of our Builders is also used toward scholarships and discounted memberships, as well as enhance the programming at Co-Lab.

Builder Plus members use the space once in a while, and are joining at this membership level to help us open up the space to others in our community.

Contributions from Builder Plus members allow us to share our space with nonprofits for meetings and retreats, in addition to supporting scholarships for discounted or free monthly memberships for others in our community.

Drop-In Members use our shared work spaces at the studio and office locations a few times a month to grab free art supplies, relax in our living room with a good book, take space for some creative time outside the house, or enjoy some of our snacks.

Our membership levels are not designed to make a profit, but rather to help us keep our doors open by covering operating costs and offering more to our community. We use an approach of solidarity economics to build our membership levels. If these monetary levels don’t work for you there are other ways to exchange for each membership level.

Weekly Members use the shared work spaces in our studio and offices location a few times a week as a creative addition to their regular work space. This level is also great for members who would like to use the space for small project meetings or community gatherings each month, and for more frequent visits.

The Weekly Members Plus plan allows for more frequent use of the spaces throughout the week–we want to use this higher membership fee to help sustain and grow our offerings to the community. Members able to invest financially at this level help us offer the space free or at discounted rates to non-profits and other community members.

Desk Members reserve permanent desks for personal use either at our studio space or in private offices in our new location. Desks in our new location offer private space with closed doors. Desks in our studio space can be reserved within our open-concept floor plan. This is a useful membership level for those seeking a more private work space or storage space.
