WHY DO WE EXIST ?
"The Crosby Collective exists to provide a platform that enables dreamers and doers to develop their vision for the world they want to create." Tyrone Curran
WHAT IS A MAKERSPACE?
A makerspace is a physical location where people gather to co-create, share resources and knowledge, work on projects, network, and build. They help intermediate and advanced users develop their skills and creativity. Their activity promotes development of skills needed for prosperity and social mobility.
The Crosby Collective was developed by Oasis Hub Henderson Avenue and made possible by funding from the Big Lottery Fund and Community Led Community Development (CLLD) Fund.
Oasis is fluid in nature, meaning that whilst there is a definite goal, how we get there is flexible. We’re not about hierarchy, we believe that people coming together to create uplifting businesses, spaces and experiences to benefit the community should be valued, enabled and embraced.
The Crosby Collective started in 2018 with a concept Coworking Space at Crosby One Centre. In early 2020 we will be launching a space where members will have exclusive access to the first Co-working/Makerspace in North Lincolnshire.
Our ethos is based upon:
- Passion to include everyone
- Desire to treat everyone equally, respecting differences
- Commitment to healthy and open relationships
- A deep sense of hope that things can change and be transformed
- A sense of perseverance to keep going for the long haul
