Geek Crossing

Maple Ridge, BC Best Community Impact:
Employees: 4 In Business Since: 2015

We started Geek Crossing to build a place to promote our community. We think geek means passion; and you can be passionate about almost anything. Geek Crossing Community Craft Centre is a public art studio. A bright and inspiring craft-space for the nerdy community to be creative and celebrate their love for whatever gets their geek on. Arts & Crafts are celebrations of the things we love most, that’s why we love supporting creativity in our public studio. We believe that the geek community is intrinsically tied to the cause of mental health awareness & access; and have been dedicated to raising funds and increasing accessibility to resources from our conception. Many who self-identify as a “geek” have felt marginalized in their own community spaces. Geek Crossing aims to provide an accessible and inclusive environment. We know how important it is for women to see themselves represented, especially in the geek scene and hope that our space feels accessible & inclusive to all.
