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. Our space is 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 continues to operate entirely through monetary donations from people like you! Please consider contributing to our operating expenses of over $5,000/mo by making a donation.

Upgrade / Reboot

Noisebridge is closed for the entire month of July (access restricted).

NB Reboot 2014 SSclip.png

We're raising $25K for our parts and labor expenditures! Help us out at our IndieGoGo fundraising campaign page.

The Reboot schedule:

  • 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 15th: 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.


Volunteer Labor Needed!

Contact Naomi: pnaomi at gmail DOT com / @nthmost on Twitter.

Current needs:
  • Painting and patching the walls.
  • Refinishing the floors <-- (most of the work)
  • Building the missing top parts of walls.
  • Moving large quantities of stuff from one part of the space to the other.
  • Cleaning in ways Noisebridge has never been cleaned (e.g. the server room)
  • Graphic, photo, and web layout editing for this wiki you are reading right now.
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!




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.

Please Come and Create With Us!

Our 5,200 square-foot space (483m2) contains an electronics lab, machine/wood shop, sewing/crafting supplies, two classrooms, conference area, and library. Everyone is welcome to use our many resources. Find others to create with. Find help with your projects. Help others with their projects. Learn, teach, share. Come to Noisebridge and create!

Noisebridge's public hours are 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM. New visitors are welcome any time (all ages, all skill levels), but it's best to visit when members are present or during an event to make sure we have a volunteer to show you around and make introductions.

Events and Classes

What to know about coming to Noisebridge: 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. Many events only make it to the Discussion or Announcements mailing lists, IRC 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 events 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.
