-VHS provides a physical space where hackers, computer geeks, engineers, circuit benders, crafters, and other creative types can gather to share ideas, equipment, opinions, and beer.   We aim to create a sort of 24/7 brain gym, where members can show up and work on personal projects, ​consult ​with friends, and learn new tricks More than just a studio space, we focus on sharing all sorts of knowledge within a friendly and collaborative atmosphere.+VHS provides a physical space where people ​can gather to share ideas, equipment, opinions, and beer. Members ​work on personal projects, ​collaborate ​with others, and learn new skills. More than just a studio space, we focus on sharing all sorts of knowledge within a friendly and collaborative atmosphere. VHS is the community garage for a community without garages.
  
-:-) [[outfitting_270_e_1st|About the move to VHS 3.0]] :-)+Many of our members share an interest in 3D printers, laser cutting, machining, crafting, electronics,​ robotics, programming,​ electronic music, and art. We welcome anyone with skills to share or an interest in learning, and strive ​to be as open as possible in everything we do.

 +==== Physical ==== 
 + 
 +We are located at 1715 Cook St.  Access to the space is from Cook St, and you will have to buzz #104 at the door. Someone will let you in, if [[http://​isvhsopen.com|we'​re open]].  
 + 
 +778-330-1234 - call us. 
 + 
 +==== Electronic ==== 
 +[[http://​talk.hackspace.ca|VHS Talk (forum/​mailing list)]] - the easiest way to keep up to date on upcoming events. This can be made to function like either a [[https://​talk.hackspace.ca/​t/​welcome-to-talk-hackspace-ca/​8|web forum or a mailing list]], your choice. 
 + 
 +[[https://​vanhack.slack.com/​|Slack]] - Slack is somewhat similar to IRC, and has replaced our IRC channel as our official member-chat medium. Unfortunately you need to be invited by one of the current admins to get access to it - that's slack.com'​s requirement,​ not ours. Information on how to do that can be found on [[https://​talk.hackspace.ca/​t/​vhs-irc-and-slack/​1318|the VHS Talk forum]].
