Talk: Building Aeronaut 2.0

While starting Aeronaut Brewery in Somerville, Holmes has seen how hard it is to create community spaces.  Based on his experience, he’d say that it’s not for either of the following reasons:

1. lack of willing participants or interest
2. lack of space, ideas, or opportunity

His talk will describe the challenges of building community spaces, focusing not on the obstacles but on a set of approaches that can maximize the likelihood of success.
