The Local Community Skillshare Project aims to bring people together to share what they can do with each other, build networks withing local communities, nurture creativity and increase competence to move towards greater self-sufficiency and resilience by offering a platform where members can organise practical and useful events drawing on the knowledge and skills within each of us  and within existing groups. The Skillshare Project encourages all members to organise an event around something they want to teach or to suggest an event for what they want to learn - whether it be in relation to building or fixing/mending things, growing and cooking, keeping bees or goats, creating music, crafting art, building pizza ovens or rocket stoves etc - any topic likely to help increase our community's resilience or self-sufficiency. 

The Skillshare Project is inspired by the Transition Network's concept of the "Great Reskilling” (see https://www.transitionnetwork.org/ingredien...), of building a more resilient community by - among other things - learning skills that used to be everyday but are now greatly undervalued - eg food growing, repairing things, natural building, maintaining renewable energy systems. 

Ideally, events would be attended by people within the local community in which they held, but this is not strictly required - especially where more general meetups are scheduled (eg speakers, discussion forums, movies). If you wish to organise a skillshare, you are encouraged to indicate the neighbourhood / community you're targeting (eg Inner West, Inner North, suburb or council area). 

Skillshares are offered as part of the Gift Economy (i.e. with no expectation of receiving anything in return) so are generally made available for free or occasionally for a nominal cost. Contributions may be requested to cover the cost of venue hire and material costs. Any other contribution received above costs go towards help with future events and other running costs of the Skillshare Project.

Come along to pass on your skills, connect with your neighbours, practice generosity, inspire each other and have fun!
