Hackspace Foundation

A non-profit, community organisation dedicated to promoting and coordinating hackspaces in and around the UK.

Note: Only active spaces are shown on the map

Hackspaces are places you can visit to meet people, learn, socialise, and collaborate. A place to make your own projects a reality or help others with theirs.

There is a rich tradition of hackspaces worldwide. In January 2009, the Hackspace Foundation was formed in response to the lack of hackspaces in the UK. Since then, we've helped many groups create their own spaces.
