Join Berkshire Creative, Cultural Pittsfield to Explore Co-Working

Staff reports

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It turns out the term "co-working" might not mean what you think.

Berkshire Creative sent us an email announcing an upcoming Co-Working Community Discussion, which it's holding in partnership with Cultural Pittsfield this Thursday, May 27, at the Lichenstein Center for the Arts. In this case, co-working means sharing a workspace with someone who does not work for the same organization as you. According to Berkshire Creative, examples of co-workers include work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation. Such individuals might seek a shared workspace with someone else.

The event runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Scott Tillitt of BEAHIVE in Beacon, N.Y., will speak about the BEAHIVE co-working space and set the stage for an open, group discussion on co-working in the Berkshires.

It's an interesting idea... imagine an artist, computer programmer, inventor and gossip columnist working in one room.

In any case, if you're interested in learning more, contact Helena Fruscio, director of Berkshire Creative at info@berkshirecreative.org or 413-822-8324 or Megan Whilden, director of Cultural Development, Pittsfield at mwhilden@pittsfieldch.com or 413-499-9348.
