OUR IMPACT AT A Glance
District Hall’s unique model allows us to reinvest revenue from site fees back into the community through free, public workspace and discounted event space.
“District Hall is a public, ground-level, accessible space – it’s truly a physical representation of how we best interact with people. We want to foster a creative, inclusive outlet to approach problem solving, and District Hall is the perfect place to do that…The ethos of this space really captures the philosophy of being a public innovation space.”
“District Hall’s story is one that highlights that power of what we’re able to achieve when we collaborate. It’s about people coming together to make something for the community at large.”
