FCG's Collaboratory

FCG’s Collaboratory (or Collab, for short) is an on-site resource outfitted with communal equipment and software necessary for the production, post-production, and marketing of artistic work (visual, performance, music, and sound work). FCG staff are here to support you where possible. FCG is also developing specialized Collab-related Workshops geared toward post-production and professionalization. 

The Collab has been created in direct response to findings from our 2023 Artists and Arts Professionals Survey, in which community members reported a significant need for low-cost/free and communal work space, equipment, and software. 

We are delighted to recognize Michael Gibson Gallery as a valued Community Sponsor of this space, thanks to their donation of a new 24" iMac.


This in-process community resource currently offers the following in terms of software and equipment:

  • 24" iMac with 4.5K retina display

  • Adobe Cloud Suite

  • Canon Rebel T5i digital SLR and 18-55mm lens

  • USB adaptor

  • Insignia card reader

  • Tools and hardware for on-site use: hammers & nails, screwdrivers & screws, drills, pliers, wrenches, exacto knives, levels, rulers

  • Tecre Button Maker Model 100

  • Tabletop perfect binding machine

  • Paper scoring machine

  • Small wooden book press


Book your time in 1-hour slots during our open hours through our Calendly Collaboratory booking page:

The Collaboratory is free to use for FCG Members. For non-members, we suggest a donation of $5 per session (no one is turned away).
