What we're about

We are Noisebridge. Noisebridge is a hackerspace for technical-creative projects, doocratically run by our members. We are a non-profit educational institution intended for public benefit. Come and visit our space a 5,200 square-foot area located in the heart of San Francisco. We teach, we learn, we share.

Noisebridge is growing, and we need a bigger space! We plan to leave our current location by August 2019. It’s all very exciting, but we need your support to pull it off! Join Noisebridge in building the largest non profit hacker community in San Francisco. Our biggest needs are recurring donations and volunteer hours for fundraising help. You can donate at patreon.com/noisebridge, and visit the space at 2169 Mission Street.

audioChurch Potluck - Share your Music, Audio and Video projects at Noisebridge!

• What we'll do Let's meet for 90 minutes, from 4pm - 5:30pm, to share our instruments, music, audio and video projects! Software, Hardware, and Snacks welcome! Things tend to devolve into a jam fest until around 7pm... Bring a snack item to share and feel free to donate $ to Noisebridge. • What to bring Project, Food to share, effect pedals. Be sure to bring along any power adapters or audio cables you might need. Sweet Bonus: If you have some sort of effect unit, people will often try connecting it to their project! Last meetup we messed with delay, loopers, Tri-band distortion, overdrive effects, and more! • Important to know The more projects, the better. We have some guitar amps, power outlets and speakers around the space, but always best to remember your own cables and technical needs, including batteries, etc.
