The Hillman City Collaboratory is a social change incubator.

Our mission is to create an instrument of transformation that provides  space and programs specifically designed to create community and equip change-makers.  The Collaboratory is housed in a multi-use complex that incorporates four unique spaces: the mixing chamber, the coworking office, the learning kitchen, and the community park & garden.

Hillman City is a diverse and historic neighborhood in south Seattle supported by the Collaboratory:

a neighborhood hub where community thrives,
a breeding ground where collaborations are born and relationships form,
a compost bucket where positive social movements blossom.

The Collaboratory was originally created by the joint efforts of Valley & Mountain Fellowship and Community Arts Create, along with an outpouring of community support.
