to shine a light on the abundant and vibrant culture and creative work opportunity in Texoma and Middle America by bootstrapping the co-working and cooperative collaboration model to develop and house a makerspace for our creative community.
The Collaboration Station Project will expand the local arts scene and STEAM learning by leveraging inter-generational exchange. We will be proponents infusing culture in downtown Sherman and the greater Texoma region. Facilitating local control and influence. Providing cultural support for educators. The Collaboration Station Project will incubate and facilitate micro-businesses and enterprises that expose the greater community and its children to many disciplines, including but not limited to the arts, sciences and humanities. Collaborators and Community Members will serve as mentors and accept mentorship.
