What is Freeside?

Justin Leggett poster.jpg

Freeside Atlanta (est. 2009) is a nonprofit work space built entirely by volunteers. We are a community of makers, tinkerers, engineers, programmers, artists, teachers, and lunatics. As a community, we have built out our space with tools and equipment for electronics, 3D printing, woodworking, metalworking, art, design, classes, and events. Everything you see in our space was donated or built by members.

Our members are engaged in amazing projects and love to share knowledge. We also develop and work with open source and free technology wherever possible, and try to release our creations under variants of the Creative Commons license.

You don't have to be a Freeside member to come to our events or take our classes. We encourage you to come out to the Tuesday night Open House that we have every week at 7:30pm or to any of the other public classes or events that we have on Meetup. Come check the place out and see if this is a community that you'd be interested in joining!

Our Mission

Freeside Technology Spaces, a non-profit organization, strives to provide a space that inspires collaboration, creativity, teaching, and open projects for the Atlanta community.

Freeside is a member-run, non-profit corporation registered in Georgia. We have submitted an application for 501(c)3 status exempt for education and scientific research purposes. In the meantime, we have fiscal sponsorship to accept tax-deductible donations.

We are currently incubating Liberated Tech, a non-profit to retrofit older tech for the Atlanta communities in need. We host their events while they work to get a space of their own.

Our Space

We built our space into different areas to consolidate where we work on stuff in the space. You can check out the different areas of our space here. We are located at:

675 Metropolitan Parkway
Suite 6066
Atlanta, GA 30310

There are detailed directions to our space to help you find the place.
