CULTIVATING AN ENVIRONMENT
FOR INSPIRING HUMAN POTENTIAL
COLLABORATORY IS ABOUT BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO TALK, TO SHARE IDEAS,
TO EXPERIENCE ART, COMMUNITY, AND THE WORLD.
The Space Coast of Florida has always stood as the doorway to innovation. Since propelling the first man to the moon, we've been known for tackling some of the world's most ambitious challenges through invention and discovery.
Now, our society is at a critical inflection point, a moment of great crisis, of great change, and of great need. Now, we must unite and innovate together.
The Collaboratory will inspire human potential. Exploration is our guiding star, inspiration and action our goal.
THE SKY IS NO LONGER THE LIMIT.
INNOVATE. IDEATE. COLLABORATE.
Collaboratory will be a creative, interdisciplinary space that nurtures universal values, inspires brave and generous thinking, and motivates action.
Integrating arts enrichment, immersive experiences, education and research, discourse and real-world activism, Collaboratory will help people find their voices, expand their thinking, develop awareness, and access the tools and networks to make a positive impact. Through robust, year-round programming, we will bring together the old and young, scientists and artists, philanthropists, civic and business leaders, public officials and more.
The full human experience will be activated, combining beautiful outdoor areas, walkable paths and contemplative spaces, an international art collection, interactive exhibits, working studios, a micro-eatery, meeting areas large and small, a rooftop garden. Originally envisioned within the burgeoning Eau Gallie Arts District, a historic neighborhood of Melbourne, Florida, Collaboratory may be situated in a number of key spots in the community. Whether located in a revitalizing section known for its vibrant lifestyle and creative vibe or in a neighborhood positioned for attracting investment, Collaboratory will take advantage of Central Florida's year-round climate and diverse ecosystem and the Space Coast's unparalleled hub of high-tech industry. No matter its location, Collaboratory and its grounds will hum with access and possibility.
In our fast-changing world, this shared space – the Collaboratory – is a necessity. Now more than ever, we need this place to imagine, innovate, adapt, and explore – together.
Collaboratory’s founding pillars, the ground-breaking K-12 Verdi EcoSchool and the long-established Community Foundation for Brevard, will drive its multi-disciplinary strategy and programming.
Together, Collaboratory will create better solutions for a stronger, more vibrant community, a place and a world where all can participate and thrive.
EXPLORATION IS OUR GUIDING STAR,
INSPIRATION AND ACTION OUR GOAL.
