FORGE Collaborative Lunch and Learn Workshops

Coming up:

Next Wednesday - Lunch & Learn Workshop

Come together with other founders and change makers to build community and explore topics on innovation and creating solutions for pressing problems.  These workshops will include a free lunch, short topical workshop, and time to get to know others who are pursuing ventures and solving problems.  All students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend, but registration is required. 

​The goal of this workshop is to introduce you techniques for designing human-centered solutions.  You’ll learn about the design thinking process and how it can be used in tandem with the Lean Canvas model we introduced in the first workshop.  Lastly, you’ll learn strategies to improve your opportunity recognition, problem-solving, and collaboration skills. Food will be provided.

Thursday at Forge

Collide, interact and collaborate at Tucson's community 'soft workday.' It's not co-working. It's community.

In a September Atlantic piece contemplating the role of the office in the post-return to work era, Derek Thompson identified two distinct work states: hard work -- heads-down tasks requiring focus and minimized interruptions -- and soft work -- "the vague middle space of weekday activity that isn't hard work but also isn't not-work." He opined that the former can be done at home just as well as if not better than the office, whereas the latter can only be done at the office. We agree with Derek. The space at Roy Place is designed for human interactions, not spreadsheets.

Beginning on March 17, you are invited to join us for Thursdays at FORGE, Tucson's community 'soft workday' where we can maximize the collision, interaction, and collaboration that we have been missing in our home offices.

The day starts with coffee and conversation in our downstairs event space, then we'll move upstairs to FORGE's Hub, normally closed to the public. Arrive by noon for access to the building!

Where: FORGE at Roy Place, 44 N. Stone Avenue.
When: Every Thursday starting March 17, 8:30am - Noon


Lets Drink Coffee and Talk About... Tucson

Let's Drink Coffee and Talk About...
Community coffee and conversation at FORGE at Roy Place. Pop in for a quick cup or stay for Thursdays at FORGE!

To begin Thursdays at FORGE on a light, caffeinated note, we'll meet downstairs in Roy's Place for coffee and conversation. Each week, we'll set a broad topic and invite one or two guests who can lend special enthusiasm, experience or expertise.

Not interested in the topic? Pop in anyway! While we're on Stone, the topics aren't set in it. Also, if coffee isn't your thing, there will be tea.

Thursdays at FORGE will continue upstairs in the Hub. Come for the coffee, stay for the conversation.

Where: FORGE at Roy Place, 44 N. Stone Avenue.
When: Every Thursday starting March 17, 8:30am - 9:30am
