Co-creation workshop space “DARE” - creative ideas and new opportunities 


In the end of february, 2020, co-creation workshop space “DARE” was opened in Valmiera. Its’ purpose is to provide an opportunity for everyone interested to use modern tools, equipment, cozy facilities and technical support to work on new products, their prototypes and various creative projects. The DARE facilities also have a production line simulation tool for analyzing production processes.


There are currently two rooms in the workshop, each with a special title for the co-production - “Greenhouse” and “Garage”. Creative garage and design experiments take place in the garage. Here you will find a graphic press, screen printing, a light table in an inspiring environment for designers. 

The Greenhouse, on the other hand, has 3D printers, a 3D scanner, 3D pens, sewing machines, overlock, soldering stations and a photo lab to immortalize your latest idea. Equipment for wood and metal processing is also available. In a near future DARE premises are planned to be equipped with a CNC cutter as well as a laser cutter.

DARE plans to organize various creative workshops, where professionals could present new tools and equipment, as well as support the new ideas.
