Join us for the creation and development of our co-working space and maker space in rural France!

We are a group of highly-motivated individuals living 30 minutes car drive south of the beautiful city of Poitiers, in SW France.
A year ago, we started an association in order to create a shared space - what they usually call a "maker space" or "co-working space". In French, the word is "Tiers-lieu".
This space is destined to welcome anyone who has a creative or business project, and needs a place to work, be creative, have a calm and pleasant environment to think, mature a project, meet people to sound out their project with, and make things.
Our place will also welcome people who need an office, or a desk, for one or more days every week, or more punctually, with a coffee machine and photocopy machine near. We will have top-notch videoconferencing equipment for those of you who need to meet with people far away. Finally, anyone who wants to organise a workshop, a concert, or any event, is very welcome to use our space in Couhé, a town that was recently renamed Valence-en-Poitou.
The municipality is yielding us a former college, which has been completely revamped for our purposes. We have the whole month of May of this year to furnish and decorate it, in order to get it ready and running for our inauguration on June 1st. there will be a concert and many other events, hosted by our members and users.
If you like to make things with wood and pallets, like to paint - walls or paintings - decorate, move things etc, please come and join us, we need you!
you will be hosted and fed by our members, who will also ensure the transport to and from the place.
We really hope to hear from you soon, to get our dream-team started!
Best regards
Vera and Isabelle
