The Brooklyn Skillshare is a community-based, community-led, and community-building learning event organized and taught by Brooklyn residents.

About this project

This year's Skillshare will be held on October 9th, 2010 at the Brooklyn Community Arts & Media High School in Bed-Stuy from 10am-4pm. The day will consist of 5 blocks of hour long classes, with 4-5 classes taking place per block (roughly 20-25 classes total). Participants can attend as many or as few classes as they like, but are encouraged to make a day of learning.

The Skillshare is FREE to the public (with a $10 suggested donation)

Why we need funding:
• to help cover costs of supplies for classes
• to provide free breakfast to attendees
• to cover printing costs for fliers and brochures

We know that Brooklyn is an endless supply of artistry and talent, and we all have something to teach and to learn from each other. We believe that education is a right - not a commodity, and hope this inclusive project will grow and foster a reciprocal community in Brooklyn, as we hope to continue holding Skillshares throughout the year, funding permitting.
