Open Works is built on one core belief: that everyone is a maker.

Our mission is to make tools, technology, and the knowledge to use them accessible to all.

We value: community, collaboration, creativity, curiosity, diversity, inclusion, learning, and support. Our name says it all–we’re open to everyone to do their work.

We work with organizations, people, and communities across differences of: age, ability, citizenship, economic status, education, gender identity or expression, life experiences, race/ethnicity, or sexual orientation, to develop inclusive programs and services that reflect our community.

Open Works has partnerships with CCBC Catonsville, Coppin State University College of Business, Maryland Institute College of Art, and Baltimore City and Baltimore County Public Schools. Please reach out to Executive Director Will Holman if you are interested in establishing a strategic relationship with us.
