QUESTION: History and info about skillshares

question / pregunta: 

I'm trying to get some skillshares started at my library school, and was hoping to do the first one about skillshares themselves to explain the idea to people, but I can't seem to find any information about them. I'm figuring I can just wing it, and get people to, you know, share their skills, as a way of introducing the idea, but it would be nice to have some background info as well.

Any resources you can recommend?

Whites Confronting Racism Workshop in Philly Nov 30-Dec 2

Radical Reference and InterActivist Skillshare

Radical Reference and InterActivist Network have agreed to collaborate on monthly Sunday afternoon skillshares. They are meant to share skills and knowledge among librarians and technology workers and will generally be targeted to participants with intermediate to advanced experience in librarianship or computer technology, depending on the topic.

This free two-day event will bring together library workers, library lovers, zine enthusiasts, book artists, publishers, and community members to explore the relationship between library work and social justice. We'll connect each other with alternative information resources while discussing socially responsible, creative ways to share information in our communities.
