We're envisioning an affordable, accessible skill-sharing community and event series for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of colour) folks in, and interested in, technology. We're starting with some co-design sessions to evaluate what community needs and interests are before deciding on programming and logistics — stay tuned! We currently host meetups, hackathons, and a tech reading group.
Inspired by the Color Coded project in LA, we're hoping that this can be a space for learning tech skills (e.g. web development, digital design), executing projects, as well as a space for critical discussion, talks, and workshops on how technology affects communities of colour and those at the margins.
In just 6 months, we’ve built a community of over 250 people, garnered support from Wattpad, Ryerson University, Parkdale Centre for Innovation, Digital Justice Lab, City of Toronto - Open Data and others. Keep up to date on events here.
