Housed in a former drugstore building across the street from downtown Dayton's Courthouse Square, the Collaboratory is a blank slate for developing collaborative projects. The Blue Sky Project's Peter Benkendorf envisions the Collaboratory as being a hub of activity where community members can gather to brainstorm and develop new ideas. Benkendorf sat down with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt in the Collaboratory space to discuss some of his vision for the space and how the community can get involved.
The Collaboratory's grand opening will be Friday, April 5 as part of downtown Dayton's First Friday celebration. The kickoff exhibition is called Best Time Ever.
