PORTSMOUTH - On July 25th, Mike Vine, co-organizer of the Free State Project's PorcFest X, announced on Facebook that the Freecoast is getting its first liberty space this fall, expected to open Sept 1. I spoke with Vine about the new venue, dubbed the Praxeum.
SLN: Who's behind this venture?
Vine: A few partners, all in the Freecoast liberty community, put up the financing to get it rolling. We have a lot of space and hope to make it financially sustainable long term. For now, the partners view it as a combination space for us to do our projects and as a way to give back to the liberty community.
SLN: What's your vision for the venue?
Vine: My vision is to have a flexible use space for liberty-oriented people. It can serve as a co-working space for freelancers. It can be a classroom... a space for private events... a hangout for the local liberty community. More...
