Participate in [ Freespace ] ! A creativity, community and civic innovation space.


The project




 [ Birth of Freespace ]


The [Freespace] idea was born in San Francisco when a community was given a warehouse for $1 for one month. 

[Freespace] was created out of the  National Day of Civic Hacking which is sponsored by the White House and NASA and invites hackers to use open data to solve challenges in their communities. As a response to this event, [Freespace] extended the National Day of Civic Hacking to the National month of Civic Hacking.






Providing an open space to people from many backgrounds, cultures, and disciplines, [Freespace] will enable citizens to innovate and create together. 


We started with a simple observation: it is a challenge to find a workplace that is free for everyone. We need a space to promote collaborative creation and exchange between people who had never have the opportunity to work together outside of [Freespace]. 


Getting out of our comfort zone and bringing new ideas to the community: that is the concept of [Freespace]. 


[Freespace] welcomes radical inclusion with distinct communities of experts (scientists, artists,  economists, lawyers, musicians, IT developers, ect…) who will meet in the space to help to generate ideas, create projects, and find solutions to challenges. 



An ephemeral space, our goal is to create a temporary space for lasting change. We will be open from June 20th until the end of September.

[ Events ]



March 3, 2014, the first Fashion Hackathon in France at Numa, in the heart of the textile quartier was completed in two weeks.






 On June 23rd, we will create a neighbourhood hack event at NUMA. The aim is to discuss how to improve relations between neighbors and optimize our relationships with each other (for example how to share: time, equipment, food, gardens, rainwater, etc.. ). You are welcome to participate !


During Fashion Week in September, we will organize a FashionTech event at Numa, with the star designer Chalayan, Parsons School, Hall Couture, Startupweekend, and many others. The event is held simultaneously in New York, London and Milan.



[ Hacking the World Cup ]





[Freespace] Paris will open in June in conjunction with the launch of the World Cup in Brazil.

This global sporting event is a time when the world comes together to celebrate the potential in each one of us to achieve our goals and dreams. Freespaces across the globe will screen the World Cup. In partnership with UNICEF, at halftime, the screen will turn into a global video conference with Freespaces from all around the world.

Each Freespace will share their ideas and local events with each other to inspire hope and to create a worldwide conversation about working together and sharing.
