3 Detroit is a collaborative environment for people to explore the balance between technology, art and culture. We feel the best way to create this environment is to bring together like-minded people who share a common passion for technology, art and culture.
The community is run by its members through voting. All founding members have worked together to create a set of by-laws that all members and supporters follow. The goal is to provide a safe and fun community environment.
Our goal is to stay a community resource through continuous hosting of various classes and events. We have created an environment that promotes learning in a fun non-traditional format.
i3 Detroit is continually working with other hackerspaces and community organizations to work on projects, events and educational opportunities.
What does i3 stand for: Imagine, Innovate & Inspire
