[edit] Noisebridge Exhibition Preparations

We’ll be setting up Noisebridge Hackerspace to display projects, make time for panels and presentations, share our stories, host classes, and have a party. Together, we will create an exhibition that highlights and remind ourselves of the value of this hackerspace, the local community of hackers that make it work, and how excellent it is to be able to share it with so many. We will have events to reflect on what was accomplished at Noisebridge during this time, what did or didn't go as planned, analyze what we’ve learned from this experiment, and see what things people have been working on.

If you would like to help get the space cleaned up, upgraded, and ready for the Noisebridge 10 Year Anniversary Exhibition and Ball please see this page for a list of tasks that would be welcome do-ocratic fixes and upgrades to the space. Please add your own as needed.
