UA Assembly “Technê” Skillshare Meetup

Visual communication is a powerful tool to transmit complex ideas and a natural way for humans to understand information.

In the “Technê” skillshare meetup on Thursday, May 26th, we will discuss the basic principles of visual communication and how to apply them to our graphics and presentations. Using these simple rules we can organize information to make it appealing and easier to understand for anyone.

In the following meetup, on Thursday, June 2nd, we will be demonstrating and learning together how to use popular graphics software, like Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape (free and open source software) or Affinity Designer. Bring your laptop with you!

Moderator: Efren Alvarez Salvado

Location and time: Eagle Heights Community Center, the Large Gym (611 Eagle Heights Dr) at 6.30pm. 

 

We will have an ample space for social distancing (6ft+) and the proper wearing of masks will be encouraged.

We will provide refreshments and snacks.

About “Technê”

“Technê” is a skillshare meetup, initiated by the UA Assembly, where people gather and share their skills. It is an open gathering of people who simply want to share what they know “how to do” with each other. These skills can be anything from math and sciences to arts and crafts. “Technê” is simply about learning new things and being together.

“Technê,” as in the root of the word “technology”, is the Ancient Greek word nowadays usually translated as “craft” or “art”. However, its original meaning encompassed both theoretical knowledge and application of that knowledge, and this is how we understand these meetups.

“Technê” skillshare meetups are therefore open for exchange of particular knowledge or skills while hanging out. This could include, but is not limited to, conversations and debates on specific subjects, presentations, reading groups, film screenings.

“Technê” skillshare meetup will be weekly gatherings at the Community Center (611 Eagle Heights) during the spring and fall semesters. The schedule during the summer and winter brakes will be defined later.
