Tech Learning Collective

Technology education for radical organizers and revolutionary communities.

Events

In addition to our intensive courses, we also host satellite events such as workshops, skillshares, and demonstrations in collaboration with community centers, hackerspaces and hacklabs, and other venues across New York City. Our satellite workshops are a low-commitment way to get a feel for our more intensive courses as well as meet some of our teaching team.
