Coworking & Citizenship

15 Nov 2011
by Alex Hillman

From a new piece in Flying Kite today:

Indyhall has also provided Hillman with a fresh sense of belonging in his longtime home. “There is no identity within citizenship for me,” he explains. “The old way was to pick up trash, vote, pay your taxes. I think there’s a level of involvement that people crave, that’s why things like Indyhall work.”

Those efforts radiate out into the larger community. “[Members] want to be good citizens of Indyhall,” says Hillman. “The sneak attack is that Indyhall is a good citizen of Philadelphia because we’re helping bring people together, helping new businesses form and helping produce things. By being a good citizen of Indyhall they’re being a good citizen of Philadelphia.”

Hey, thanks for reading!

Alex Hillman I am always thinking about the intersection of people, relationships, trust and business. I founded Indy Hall in 2006, making us one of oldest fully independent coworking communities in the world. This site is packed with the lessons and examples I’ve learned along the way. You can find me on Twitter, too! 🐦 Say hi.
