How It Came to Be

Hatter St think tank was the first iteration of think tank, with its humble beginnings taking shape during a temporary house sitting gig at the start of December 2016. It has now blossomed through shared sentiments of misery and potential failure into a beautifully interconnected web of think tanks, with our new Kingston-based home launched in May 2017 as Mack St think tank, followed by Bartlett St N think tank, then Rice Rd think tank, and currently Lansdowne St. think tank and all of its anxieties of self-doubt have now spread to the east coast, with our partners in Cape Breton operating out of Amelia St think tank, and now onto Harold St think tank.
