Welcome to the Cooperative Chess Cultural Center (4C- pronounced "The Fork")! The 4C serves as the home of The Royal Oak Initiative (ROI) and a gathering space for community. From the art that adorns the wall, to the community leaders that convene to connect through the wisdom of chess, everything about the 4C is focused on increasing wisdom and wellness in the minds and lives of chess explorers. Join the 4C with a monthly or yearly membership for co-working, event rentals, meeting space, and of course chess!
As a cooperative space, we ask everyone to "Give according to ability and receive according to need." We want this to be a space where folks feel a sense of belonging, safety, and inclusion. This value-aligned approach to membership says we love and appreciate you for where you are in your journey.
Conveniently located directly across from Upper Cup Coffee, this is a great space for you to take a phone call, have a semi-private meeting, spread out your belongings on our 6ft and 8ft tables, get in a quick game of chess, catch up with a friend, or simply listen to some music.
Memberships start at $5/mo for co-working, but if you can give more and your heart supports, please do. Your best is good enough for us.
In addition, enjoy 2 months free when you purchase an annual membership!
There will be special prizes and perks for the first 64 members.
Let's make moves!
