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. We operate primarily in a 5,200 square-foot space located in the heart of San Francisco. We teach, we learn, we share. Read more about Noisebridge or watch a short video

We are committed to providing a safe space to work, learn, and play. Please read and understand our anti-harassment policy and community standards. This is how we expect people to behave when they are at Noisebridge, and you should also expect this standard of behavior from others in the space.

Noisebridge relies on your monetary donations to continue operating. If you have found Noisebridge useful, please consider donating to help us keep operating.

Upgrade / Reboot

Noisebridge is closed for the entire month of July.

Access to the space is restricted to make way for electrical and other critical cleanups and retrofits.

>>> We really really need to raise all of $25K for our parts and labor expenditures! Do help us out at our IndieGoGo fundraising campaign page. <<<

Please check the Noisebridge Discuss list for access times.
The closure schedule is as follows:

  • July 1st: "hard close" - major cleanout of the space (necessary to allow all electrical work to be done)
  • August 1st: "soft reopening" - work will still be in progress, but guests will be allowed.
  • August 9th to 16th: Class-A-Thon Week! A full week of special Noisebridge donation-encouraging classes and workshops leading up to...
  • August 15th: Grand Reopening and Kickass Fundraising Party to benefit the Noisebridge Reboot.

Further details can be found in this announcement message.


We could still use some more volunteers

Please help us and become a part of the refurbishing action.
We could use a bit more specific help with:
  • moving stuff (aerobic and weightlifting possibilities!)
  • electrical
  • plumbing
  • organizing things
  • decorating
  • other undefined cool stuff
An hour, a few hours, lots of hours -- however much time you would like to add.
We'd be especially mega grateful for those of you who could spare daytime hours!

Please do not hesitate to contact Naomi:

Note that while Noisebridge is officially closed for the rest of the month for critical cleanups and retrofits, our associated hackerspace in Oakland, Sudo Room, has already relocated to its new Omni Oakland Collective location and is now open. Please see Sudo Room's Discuss list and Announce list postings for further status on this local hackerspace alternative available during our July closure.

Events and Classes

Want to attend a class or event? Before you arrive or once you're at the space, just ask the teacher or event organizer if you can be their guest. Read more about our access policy. Please see our events hosting page for suggestions on how to use Noisebridge for your event/class/workshop.

Not all events make it onto this calendar. And some of the listings here may be out of date.
Many events only make it to the Discussion or Announcements mailing lists, IRC, our Noisebridge Meetup page <https://www.meetup.com/noisebridge>, or in person at Tuesday meetings. Best of all, Noisebridge is about people getting together at the space in San Francisco to do stuff. DO pay attention, as some eventSs just arise organically from the bottom up!

Want to host your event at Noisebridge? We like seeing classes and talks on interesting things pertaining to various subjects of hacking. Most of all, we like seeing familiar faces. Please participate in the space and our weekly Tuesday meetings to see if we're the right audience for what you want to share before announcing a new event. Additionally, please see our events hosting page for suggestions on how to use Noisebridge for your event/class/workshop.

Status

Noisebridge is at its lowest grassroots stage, runlevel 2.
The space is open only for repairs, updates, retrofits, etc.

We began building Noisebridge in February 2007. Since December 2007 we've had regular Tuesday meetings, and rented our first physical space as of October 1st 2008. We quickly outgrew our first space and have been at our much larger 5,200 square-foot second location since October 1st 2009. We are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization as of July 2009, retroactive to October 2008.
