June Un-Meetup Recap
In June, on a rainy Thursday morning, a group of more than 30 Hive Chicago members gathered at Sweet Water Foundation’s Perry Ave Commons to unlearn, unmeet, and reconnect.
The event’s theme of “Connect + Make + Learn” came to life as participants experienced how SWF practices Connected Learning and flips the traditional classroom setting upside down in the Think-Do House. The Think-Do House is a formerly foreclosed home that was transformed to a community wellness and learning center by SWF. Each space within the home functions as a classroom, gathering space, working space, and a space to create connections. Rather than a traditional classroom, the Think-Do House offers SWF Apprentices and visitors an opportunity to engage in hands-on and active learning in an inspiring environment.
After a brief round of introductions between Hive members and the SWF team, attendees explored the Commons and engaged in activities ranging from screen printing to making a wooden, fractal seat from reclaimed lumber. Members also took part in an interactive workshop and demo led by Brittany Jones, Community Manager for Applied Digital Skills at Google, to learn about Google’s free, video-based, and online curriculum that prepares students of all ages for the growing number of jobs that require basic digital skills.
Despite torrential rain, the Hive Un-Meetup at the Commons was a great time for all who were able to weather the storm.
