This mandatory “stay at home” situation is like all of the worst parts of working from home, but without the good parts and way more stressful.
Days blur together, and the ups and downs can feel like a rollercoaster you’re riding by yourself.
If you’re anything like us you are craving a periodic dose of structure, a sense of mutual support, and even the occasional chat with other adults to keep yourself from feeling completely unstuck from reality.
Relief is possible! Even though our coworking space is closed for COVID, our coworking community is still here for you. And conveniently, you can join Indy Hall from the comfort of your coffee table or bedroom workspace!
Once you’re in, you’ll join an active community of generous and curious people, professionals, freelancers, remote workers and more who are there when you need them the most, in the ways you need them the most.
We know it’s not all about the work, either. ☕️
In our community you can easily connect with people over your shared interests outside of your career, too. Take a break and shoot the breeze over the things that make you happy right now, like music, movies, books, comics, your favorite cat gifs, crafting, and loads more. (We even have a channel specifically for sharing good news.)
Turns out that watercooler chat is important after all, eh? If you’re missing the serendipity of stumbling into a conversation about something you’re passionate about, we’ve got what you’re looking for.
People from all backgrounds, interests, industries, and disciplines are welcome, and we take that seriously. We’re all figuring this out together, right?
How does @Home Membership work?
Our secret superpower is that we’ve always had a vibrant online community, and over the years it’s become a first-class experience rather than an add-on.
And during this time when our online spaces are our only spaces, we’re working with our community to make them even better.
Our @Home Membership is already helping hundreds of members get through lockdown together (but from a distance and over the internet).
Need a reason to get out of bed? Struggling with a lack of structure in your day?
We get it.
Start your day with friendly faces and stimulating discussions in our daily coffee chats, with two times to choose from.
Join members in sharing daily goals and achievements. Not sure what to do with your time? Try daily group micro-challenges to jump-start your feeling of getting things done.
Looking for ways to stay connected, meet new people, and learn new skills while working from home?
Members-only events every week make it easy! Favorites like Show & Tell, wide-ranging educational workshops, and specialized Discord channels create tons of opportunities to share and gain new skills in a supportive, community environment.
We put our focus on relationships, not “networking.”
Our members love to share their professional and personal interests and the community we’ve built thrives on this energy.
If you are looking for new gigs, new work, or new friends, our community is packed with professionals from all kinds of backgrounds and industries who you can trust.
Why would I need a community?
While it feels like the whole world is changing around us, our values and virtues haven’t.
Since we started in 2006, it’s never really been about the space. Indy Hall has always been a hub for friendship, collaboration and mutual support.
Now, maybe more than ever, we need companionship. To come together to lift and to each other up.
We need people to talk to who aren’t relying on us for work, deadlines, and deliverables. We need friendly faces and commiseration, cheerleaders in our corners, and coaches leading us forward. We need help from experts to build valuable skills so we can blast through obstacles.
We need optimism tethered to reality.
We need each other, sometimes in ways we don’t know how to ask for.
We need to feel a sense of ownership, a sense of comfort, and a sense of home (even if we’re already technically there).
That’s what Indy Hall has always been about.
Do I have to sign a long-term contract?
I’m struggling with money right now. Do you have any assistance?
You bet we do. We never want a short-term financial limitation to be the reason someone can’t be a part of our community.
This is extra true now, when so many people need a sense of community and support more than ever.
Thanks to some generous and anonymous contributors from our community, we have a limited number of completely free Indy@Home memberships available as scholarships by application.
If you are struggling with isolation and finances during the COVID lockdown and would like to learn more about how to get a free membership, email us.
What payment methods can I use?
We accept all major credit cards for our monthly memberships.
Our secure membership portal automatically charges your membership every month on the same day that you joined.
If you (or your employer) prefers to pay with a check or ACH transfer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
