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.
