Often you'll hear a coworking space explained as an office space for small businesses, start-ups, and individuals. This is definitely true, but we believe coworking is so much more. It's not just about having a physical space to work; it's about having a community to work amongst. Coworking is about connections between local professionals, artists, freelancers, and entrepreneurs—people who are self-motivated and often earning an income through their own creativity and drive.
At COWORKQC, we have just about as an eclectic a group of people as you'll find. Our members are doing outstanding and interesting work and we could not be more proud of all they accomplish. As we provide a community and beautiful space for them to work, we also do what we can to make all of our their lives better through promoting local businesses, encouraging members to get out and try neighborhood eateries and breweries, and supporting local retailers and festivals.
During an exciting weekend in downtown Davenport, we are happy to announce our first gallery opening. We hope this becomes the first of many gallery events that sponsor and support local artists. COWORKQC is all about giving people a start, whether it's a start at new friendships, professional networks, or a broader audience for your business or art.
This month at COWORKQC Davenport-based artist Marie Stephens will be displaying a collection of her most recent passion: beloved pooches. Marie is in tune with the personalities of pets, understands the bond between pet and owner, and loves to translate that to the canvas. She has hosted a contest to collect pooch portraits to display at her gallery opening on August 26th (National Dog Day!) and we're delighted to share them with you.
We invite you to come downtown on the 26th and stop by our open house, where you can enjoy the work of a talented artist, a glass of wine, and an appetizer or two. Click HERE for more information and to RSVP. (Friendly dogs are welcome.)
