Join Us for the Reno Collective OPEN HOUSE on Thursday, July 19, 2018

June 28, 2018 in Announcements

It’s been one year in our new location and it’s time to celebrate what makes the Reno Collective so great: COMMUNITY. Everyone is invited to join us for the RENO COLLECTIVE OPEN HOUSE on Thursday, July 19th from 4:30 – 7pm at 1515 Plumas St – corner of Plumas and Mt Rose – formerly Granny’s House Recording Studio.

Interested in seeing the space? Take a tour with one of the owners! Guests can try out our 3-D Printer in the Maker Studio or sit in the hot seat of the Podcast Studio. Both amenities are free for use with membership to the Collective, along with: a legal address that’s not your apartment, a place to meet someone you might rather not invite to your living room, and tools like erase boards and projectors.

Curious to see what exactly it is that we do here? Stop by for a beer and chat with a member about what our collaborative workspace means to them. Our members are freelancers, telecommuters, and independent workers from diverse fields including videography, photography, software development, design, business process optimization, coaching, marketing, and yes, even rocket science. The cross-pollination that occurs in this building gets us all a little closer to truly changing the world.

Introducing the Reno Collective Cotivation Program

June 30, 2017 in Announcements

Many of our members joined Reno Collective to create a sense of accountability for themselves. We want to help our members stay accountable and get them closer to achieving their goals while connecting with fellow members in the process. To accomplish this, we’re excited to announce our new Cotivation program for Reno Collective members.

What is Cotivation?
Cotivation is a five-week program, with participants meeting on a weekly basis to set goals and revisit previous commitments. This means that every participant has a chance to make progress with the help of fellow coworkers. Weekly meetings ensure everyone has a sense of accountability as well as ongoing guidance from helpful peers. Challenges are routinely identified, tackled, then re-examined, so participants can feel a sense of not just progress in their work but in their development as better professionals and more well-rounded people.

The Cotivation format was created by Tony Bacigalupo https://twitter.com/tonybgoode and Susan Dorsch https://twitter.com/nomadicq and we are excited to be introducing it to the Reno Collective community.

Dates
Two info-sessions will be held on July 7 & July 12, both meant to help you get a better sense of whether Cotivation is right for you. The deadline to join will be July 12, and the first session will begin during the week of July 17-21, the final session will be during the week of August 14th-18th. There will be one session a week, approximately an hour long, during a total of five weeks.

Get Started
We will be piloting this with a first batch of 8-10 members and will open it up to more batches after we complete the first one in August.

If you’re interested in getting in on the first batch, please attend one of the information sessions and/or sign up here: https://renocollective.typeform.com/to/VB6kxB

Reno Collective is leveling up!

May 21, 2017 in Announcements

When we first opened Reno Collective at the end of 2009, we hoped that Reno’s freelancers, budding startups and remote employees would find a home with us and together build a strong community of independent workers. Fast forward to 2017 and the Reno Collective now includes creative and technical talent from just about every industry you can think of. It’s incredibly inspiring to see what our members achieve each and every day and we’re proud to work alongside them.

If you are reading this, then you have been a part of the Reno Collective community in some way. We are so thankful to have you and we want to let you in on some exciting news.

We’re leveling up! Again! We’re excited to announce Reno Collective version 4.

We Bought a Building!

We are moving to 1515 Plumas Street, on the corner of Mt Rose and Plumas. This was most recently known as Sierra Sonics Recording Mansion and previously Granny’s Recording Studio. It has quite a history and has been host to many musical guests including Dr. Dre and Eminem.

We will be closing shop down at our current location from May 27th through June 4th and reopening on June 5th in the new Reno Collective Mansion.

Studio A & What To Expect In Our New Space

As we move into this new space, we’re excited to embrace its history and restore the studios to their former glory. While we will not be operating a recording studio, Reno Collective members and the Reno community will be able to book the studios for events, meetups, classes, team retreats, performances or even music recordings.

It will have all the things our members have come to expect from working out of Reno Collective but we’re also going to be in a new part of town, have our own parking (cars and bikes!) so it’s easier for clients to find and meet with members, more conference rooms for those important meetings and did we mention you’ll be able to cowork outside? The wrap around porch is pretty sweet and you better bet that picnic table is going to get some use this summer.

Our Forever Home

While the space itself is exciting, we’re incredibly grateful for the opportunity to make this space our “forever home”. We were inspired by Holland Project and their efforts to secure their own building so they could secure their future as a valuable community and gathering place for Reno’s all-ages art and culture scene. Like Holland, we, too, are here to stay!

We exist to provide a place for freelancers, startups, remote employees and independent workers to work but also to cultivate a community of learners and doers. Our members learn from one another and ultimately help rise the tide for all independent workers in Reno. This happens through sharing experiences, cultivating new skills, collaborating on projects and having a space to meet new people. Having our own building allows us to focus on these things and provide a social and productive workspace for our members.

Music, Art and Technology

While we have always had a reputation for focusing on technology and software development, we are also home to many other creatives including musicians and visual artists. As we grow into our new space, we will be embracing the musical history of the building and bringing back Collective Desk Concerts!

We will also be commissioning local artists to grace our walls with stunning murals, local art and art shows. We have our eyes on some talented folks but if you are a local artist, please get in touch with us at art@renocollective.com or music@renocollective.com.

New Ways to Join

With this new home, we’re going to be rolling out some new options for anyone who wants to join Reno Collective. We’re exploring new options for community members, a podcasting membership and potentially a music membership. We’ll announce more in the coming months! If you are interested in learning more about joining the Reno Collective community, let us know at cowork@renocollective.com.
