What is a skillshare?
It's a hands-on learning event, where folks offer their experience in order to empower others. This kind of event is also the perfect opportunity to meet new people, ask questions, and join forces with others!

Why a skillshare?
Well, the way we see it:

The economy is inconsistent, and doing things for yourself saves $$ and is fun! Education can be costly Information should be free Communities can share with each other, and you can be an active member by teaching your skills Hands-on learning gives you an experience to learn and make new friends!
