This money is available in October and March for resident-directed projects and purchases that directly benefit the community.

Technê Skillshare

UAA Techne Skillshare participants

Technê is a skillshare meetup, initiated by the UW-Madison University Apartments 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. Skills can be anything from math and sciences to arts and crafts. Technê is simply about learning new things and being together.

Skillshare meetups are therefore open for the 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, and film screenings.

What is Technê?

Technê, as in the root of the word “technology”, is the Ancient Greek word 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.


Gatherings are at the University Apartments Eagle Heights Community Center (611 Eagle Heights) during the spring and fall semesters. The schedule during summer and winter breaks will be defined later.



There are no upcoming events.
