Kreativ is a cooperative workspace empowering freelancers in and around Santa Clarita, CA. We work, collaborate, and host events.
Kreativ is so much more than desk space. Sure, we have that too. But at its core, Kreativ empowers freelance professionals in and around Santa Clarita, California.
The Santa Clarita facility was born out the need to work more productively than a loud coffee shop, stuffy executive suite, or lazy home environment might allow.
To that end, the Kreativ team is steadfast and dedicated to curating a shared workspace exclusively for the creative freelancer in mind — the likes of which Santa Clarita has never before seen.
Offering collaborative workbar space, semi-private offices, a media production studio, a conference room, lounge and host of amenities, we've got freelancers like you covered.
Why are we fundraising?
Kreativ is for the art community; it's that simple.
To that end, we're opening the doors to Kreativ online a bit early -- offering supporters the opportunity to have a founding hand in this new venture and help cement its sustainability.
Whether you live in or around Santa Clarita or want to support the fostering of the arts in any community around the world, we appreciate your consideration.
Donate today and pick-up a 30-day membership and some fantastic incentives for (an honestly) amazing deal, snag an original fine art piece from Frank Hansen (commissioned exclusively for Kreativ), or throw in a few bucks to have your name on the Kreativ wall as a contributing member.
About the rewards
Yup, we know some of the great people below. Others, we're big fans of and think you should be to. Here's why:
Proxart Magazine: Based just outside Los Angeles, Proxart prides themselves on finding the diamonds in the rough – the innovative art that, often, lies behind closed doors in suburbia – and bringing a much-needed awareness of broader art and culture into suburban (and non-suburban) life.
Kreativ Workbar Membership: Pull up a chair, set-up shop, and take some inspiration from the treetop views just outside the window.Each workbar reservation includes a spacious birch-top desk, a comfortable rolling and reclining chair (we want you to stick around awhile), and ample outlets for all your precious devices.
Intelligentsia Black Cat Espresso: This syrupy and sweet espresso blend has been the staple of the Intelligentsia lineup since the very beginning. It is a product of intensive lot selection and close, direct work with the farmers who produce its components. The Black Cat Classic Espresso’s hallmark is its supreme balance and wonderful sweetness.
“Rework” by 37signals founders, Jason Fried and David Hansson:: Each of our founding members has read "Rework," been challenged by it, and reference it often. This book offers some great insight into how we all can waste less time, offer people more value, be creative, and accomplish things we’ve not yet imagined.
Frank Hansen: Frank is an illustrator and cartoonist living in the Los Angeles area. His art has been featured in shows from London to California. Frank's generous enough to offer an original fine art piece exclusively for this Kreativ Kickstarter event; only 20 are available:
Basecamp: Millions of entrepreneurs and freelancers (including the Kreativ team) use Basecamp as an online collaboration tool. Share files, communicate, set milestones, and get organized.
