The Evolve Project is here to shake things up and turn libraries into a cutting-edge innovation hub! We specialize in building maker spaces and fab labs, and providing expert guidance to help libraries take their environments to the next level. But we’re not just about the tools, we’re about fostering a culture of experimentation, creativity, and problem-solving. Plus, our partnerships with companies from around the globe are all about sharing ideas and thriving communities, not just making a quick buck. If you’re ready to evolve the library into the community anchor of the 21st century you have come to the right place. If you’re a company looking to get into libraries, we are the only platform that exists to make that possible.
Brian Pichman helps libraries of all shapes and sizes prepare for a future driven by artificial intelligence, mixed reality, and other state-of-the-art technologies through his groundbreaking work with the Evolve Project. By creatively tracking trends across industries, he helps libraries choose and integrate the right technologies to improve operations and transform old, dull spaces into vibrant centers of creativity, knowledge-sharing, and community engagement that truly inspire lifelong learning in a hybrid world. Brian not only inspires libraries to re-imagine the role of libraries and educational institutions, but offers a blueprint to reach new audiences, drive change, and transform communities for the better. Makerspaces, collaboration spaces, innovation hubs, and streamlined operations are only the beginning. Brian wants to help libraries nurture the innovative spirit necessary to remain strong anchors within the community.
