The past three months at RAIL YARD have been really exciting! We have spent much time refining our identity, expanding on our website and social media, and spending quality time with our members in an effort to learn more about them, and continue to strengthen our organically developing community. Our current members have joined RAIL YARD knowing that our coworking/makerspace/collaborative space/hybrid community is ideal for them, and through this belief and the voices of our members, we have expanded the environment to suit their needs, and will continue to adapt to the desires and ideals of our community.
A vibrant environment and a dynamic sense of community are both critically important to successful entrepreneurship, the boosting of business clientele, and creative innovation, while stimulating the economy at the local, regional, and global levels. At RAIL YARD, we see our entrepreneurial endeavors and artistic achievements as talent development and encouragement, and attraction work, that are laying the foundation for economic success today and twenty years from now. In today’s economy, collaborative entrepreneurship is a terrific way of moving forward for people who desire to take greater control of their lives and create wealth in their community and around the world.
RAIL YARD is a fantastic, collaborative, creative work environment that has generated a deep sense of community among all of its occupant artists and designers. Although we may appear to be a coworking space--of which there are plenty in Tucson--we are truly one-of-a-kind. We support the coworking movement, and are listed in coworking directories, but we have evolved into a different kind of working and playing space altogether.
Studies of workplace happiness and creative productivity seem to link back to the issue of “how do we feel” when we open the office door? Some studies of environments have revealed that when we enter someone’s home for the first time, we make our initial assessment of the space through our senses in twenty seconds!
You will feel relaxed and invigorated in RAIL YARD. You will feel good when you come to work at RAIL YARD, and feel good all day long. So will your clients. The spaces are so gracious and filled with imaginative lighting that your spirits will soar and you will want to linger as long as you can—and again, so will your clients, You will feel as if you are welcoming your clients into your home, not your office.
