FAMiLab is a non-profit community-based art and technology collective running out of Orlando, Fl (i.e. a hackerspace). The ultimate goal of the FAMiLab is to provide a safe space where hackers, makers, and crafters can wield their imagination in any way they see fit. Think of the FAMiLab as a club for geeks! Be ye art geek, LARP geek, code geek, lab geek, or any geek in between--we would like you to join us at the lab and teach a workshop, lead a lecture, or simply work on a project while surrounded by awesome people. If you can think it, and can find the supplies, it's fair game at the lab.
Following the philosophies of the worldwide hackerspace movement, FAMiLab seeks to be a diverse community where people of various backgrounds can come together to teach and learn. We provide a space, tools, and a community of geeks for you to utilize. Interests amongst current members range from abstract mathematics to microcontrollers, iPhone application programming to learning to program with Python, and from printmaking to making you lose the game in creative ways. We're always looking for new people to collaborate on current projects or bring new projects to the table.
FAMiLab is in the process of getting incorporated and applying for 501(c) status - meaning we're organized and run as a non-profit corporation. At the moment we are completely funded through member dues and donations. We intend to apply for grants, hold fundraisers, and open workshops to the public for additional funding. Currently the FAMiLab calls an 800 sq. ft. warehouse in Altamonte Spring, Fl home. All 800 square feet are chock full of potential -- potential hardware you can hack, potential books you can read, potential space you can claim as your own. Consider coming to one of our public meetings (which occur every Tuesday at 8pm) and finding out how to make your life cooler in the geekiest possible way!
