A note to the novice coworker:

  • Coworking is exactly that ‘co’ – alongside others. It is open plan and there are many people around you
  • The idea is to be around other people, so if you plan on coming in an not connecting, wearing headphones all day and being anti social, you may miss the point
  • You will get out of the experience what you put in

Coworking spaces share many things; workspace, eating space, hangout space, food, ideas and connections, if this sounds exciting and something you’d be interested in being a part of, River City Labs looks forward to welcoming you. 

To register your interest, RSVP via the RCL EVENTS page. There will be an eventbrite page to register  interest however there will be no set bookings available for this week as it will be first come first served with  work spaces managed in relation to demand.
