Hackspace catania is based on the concept of Hacking, which is defined as : " The re-design of a system to function in ways not intended by the owner , administrator, or designer ". Hackspace Catania is a non profit organization run entirely by its members, where people with common interests , computers, technology , science, art and digital electronics, can meet, socialize and / or collaborate. The hackspace can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of workshops and / or artistic studies where people meet to share resources, tools and knowledge to build things or carry out projects .

Members have access to the equipment, tools and services that the association provides . The use is governed by an internal code .
