On June 24, 2009, Freeside Atlanta became self-aware.

Freeside Atlanta is a 501(c)(3) non-profit hackerspace located in the Metropolitan Warehouses in the community of West End, Atlanta, Georgia. We are a community of makers, tinkerers, engineers, programmers, artists, teachers, and lunatics. We are making the future. Our members are engaged in amazing projects and love to share knowledge. We meet regularly to host events, like workshops and talks, or just to work together. We also develop and work with open source and free technology wherever possible.

Our mission is to provide a space that inspires collaboration, creativity, teaching, and open projects for the Atlanta community. Freeside houses 6,000 square feet filled with workstations, tools, workshops, and a collaborative environment available and open to the public. Located just south of downtown Atlanta, it is an ideal space in a central location for Atlanta area events and makers.

We host an Open House event on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. Check our event calendar on for the next upcoming Open House event. Visit our site or see our FAQ for more information about visiting our space.

Remember: at Freeside the only limit is yourself.

Joining Freeside[edit]

Are you an Atlanta area hacker looking for a place to call home? Freeside is always looking to connect with people who have creative ideas or who simply want a community to share and a space to hack.

Our bi-monthly Open House events are the best place to get acquainted with our space and our community. Be sure you drop by one of those events if you are interested in joining our ranks!
