What we're about

In this Meetup we help the circulation of knowledge: a way of doing things, a passion, a language, a professional experience.

I know:

• How to paint a silk scarf.

• To talk in public.

• Some sailors’ knots.

• How to use Facebook.

• Some French.

I would like to learn:

• To cook a vegan dishes.

• Basic photography.

• How to make a web page.

• How to write a cv.

• Chinese

• And more...

This Meetup is an opportunity to meet people interested in what we know and people that can teach us something we would love to learn. It is a non-monetary encounter. We do not have to pay for the knowledge. All knowledges have the same value but the exchanges are priceless! They are exchanges of knowledge, not of service and each one of us is at the same time provider and seeker of knowledge and savoir-faire.

We meet once a month to request and offer a knowledge or a savoir-faire. We see if someone in the group is interested in or has this know-how and would like to share it with us. We choose a place for these exchanges to happen and the frequency we would like to meet.

It is done. We can start learning...
