The WeeklyWeekly invites participants

The WeeklyWeekly is a co-working, co-making and co-learning space that meet weekly at the fabrication lab of Brooklyn Research, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. It uses weekly meeting as a format to encourage people from different background to keep experimenting with passion projects using the language of new media and creative technology.

For more info: please visit


In early 2018, The Weekly Weekly launched as an experiment to see if simply keeping pace with work, week-by-week, and sharing your progress was enough to keep you going. 

We learned that at monthly meetups, people could connect in person, get feedback towards their goals, and gather support where they needed, and got great support from Brooklyn Research and The Bosco for spaces.

We learned that by having a final goal of showing that work by years end, motivation changed from the experimenting weekly, to producing a final product that is ready for the world.

We produced a podcast to share your stories with the world, and learned how important great narrative serves to reach an audience beyond our community walls. 

Through this process, our work transformed from idea to reality, and our community grew. 

The lightbulb went!
This needs to be an INCUBATOR!!!
But... incubators have tons of money and resources, and we just have each other. 

Starting in 2019, The Weekly Weekly will focus our process as the “incuBETA”; a community driven beta project motivated to develop the processes and the resources to be a true, community driven art and tech incubator. 

Over the next year we’ll continue to produce the newsletter featuring your work and continue to host meetups where you can get the community support you need, but we’re setting a few extra goals. 

More events. We’re looking to give you more opportunities to show your work, and different kinds of work. 

More resources for your work. We’re going to be looking for grants and financial resources to make this process happen. 

We’re going to be more public. What good is this process if you can’t share it with the world? We’re going to push for more press around our events to get your work seen by the world. 

And we need you. We need you to believe that we can build a community driven incubator, that you can go from concept to reality with our help, and that you can help make it happen. 

If you believe in our community driven "incuBETA" please support us. 

2019 is going to be an exciting year, and the The Weekly Weekly “incuBETA” will be revolutionary. 
Please share this message with anyone you think would like to be part of the community, or who you think could contribute towards meeting our goals in 2019. 

Conference Datatata Open Call

For more info: please visit

Conference Datatata aims to discuss the wide range of questions about how the artistic practise is affected by contemporary phenomena of massive data collecting and data interpretation.

Conference will take place in Brno at the Faculty of Fine Arts at Brno University of Technology in April 12, 2019.

You are invited to submit mainly theoretical, but also practical works, artworks and/or interdisciplinary projects corresponding (but not limited to) the following conference topics:

  • Datatata – data from the perspective of the machine

    In this conference section focused on machine and non-human perspective, we can discuss, for example, who is the former of final decision while the decision is based on data collected and processed by the (digital) machine? Who are we while the data describe us as the discrete collections of parameters, history, and features?

  • Data + 2ta – data from the perspective of humans

    This conference section aims to discuss data issue from the human perspective and our ability to interpret data pre-processed and collected by the machine. Can humans be still able to understand and divide their interaction with machines while the first is a master of abstraction, simplification and modeling, and the latter is a master of description, complexity and exploration?

  • – data in art

    This conference section aims to discuss such authentic art production which is based on data. What issues are brought in the visual arts by data, and what forms and genres do they influence? What questions on understanding the relationship of big data and living reality are brought out by such art?

Upperline Code seeking summer school instructional fellow

Upperline Summer Instructional Fellow:

This summer, learn coding for free, teach middle or highschoolers, and earn stipend!

Who are we?

Upperline Code is looking for Summer Instructional Fellows as it pursues its mission of empowering high school students and teachers to change the world with code. You’d be joining a small but quickly-growing organization that already has partnerships with Google, ScriptEd, Prep for Prep, and some of New York’s top high schools. We believe that technology has the ability to transform students’ lives and careers, and we are driven by the pressing need for high quality, rigorous and engaging computer science education. As demand for computer science and programming skills surges in the United States, the supply of candidates with these skills have not kept pace. Upperline Code aims to narrow the gap by training new and veteran computer science teachers this year, as part of its Summer Instructional Fellowship.

What is a Summer Instructional Fellow?

This summer, fellows will receive paid in-depth computer science training and support as they gain the technical and pedagogical skills to teach an introductory high school computer science course. We believe that the best way to learn a subject is to teach it - that’s why we’ve structured the fellowship into three steps:

  1. Learn to Code: You’ll receive online work and mentorship in preparation for your summer bootcamp. Topics will include HTML, CSS, Python, Javascript, React.js, data science, and more. (If you already know how to code, this online work will be adapted to your needs)

  2. Learn to Teach Code: You’ll spend one week with other teachers learning the pedagogy of computer science education, and be paired with a Lead Instructor for ongoing mentorship throughout the summer.

  3. Teach Code: Finally, you’ll work for 3 to 8 weeks teaching Upperline’s Summer Classes in New York City, while getting support and feedback from your Lead Instructor and the Upperline leadership team.

Fellows will earn a stipend of up to $800/week.

Who Are We Looking for?

Upperline fellows are passionate about learning to code, and about empowering students. They come from a diverse range of experiences and backgrounds, but generally they: :

  • Hold a bachelor’s degree in computer science or related field OR have graduated from a coding bootcamp OR have at least two years of full-time experience teaching any subject with high school or middle school students.

  • Are passionate about learning Upperline’s curriculum in Ruby, HTML/CSS/Javascript, and Swift.

  • Are excited to develop their teaching craft and pedagogy.

  • Have a mindset that is highly reflective, and are extremely receptive to feedback.

  • Hold a strong belief in the capabilities of all students.

  • Are able to collaborate productively with a diverse team of individuals to produce incredible results.

Apply at We look forward to reading your application.

Black Girls CODE seeking a Vice President

Black Girls CODE is looking for a Vice President, Program (VP)! The VP will design, implement and scale the program that positions the organization to coach 141,000 students by 2021 and 1 million by 2025.

You can live: in Oakland or New York

Salary range: $140k-160K

Review the FAQs & Apply HERE (

Deadline: February 4th at 2pm PT

From BGC founder: Kimberly Bryant

When I was first introduced to computer programming, as a freshman in Electrical Engineering, Fortran and Pascal were the popular languages for newbies in computing and the Apple Macintosh was the new kid on the block. I remember being excited by the prospects, and looked forward to embarking on a rich and rewarding career after college.

But I also recall, as I pursued my studies, feeling culturally isolated: few of my classmates looked like me. While we shared similar aspirations and many good times, there’s much to be said for making any challenging journey with people of the same cultural background.

Much has changed since my college days, but there’s still a dearth of African-American women in science, technology, engineering and math professions, an absence that cannot be explained by, say, a lack of interest in these fields. Lack of access and lack of exposure to STEM topics are the likelier culprits.

By launching Black Girls Code, I hope to provide  young and pre-teen girls of color opportunities to learn in-demand skills in technology and computer programming at a time when they are naturally thinking about what they want to be when they grow up.

That, really, is the Black Girls Code mission:  to introduce programming and technology to a new generation of coders, coders who will become builders of technological innovation and of their own futures.

Imagine the impact that these curious, creative minds could have on the world with the guidance and encouragement others take for granted. 

I have, and I can’t wait!

CTC student Nicholas Sadnytzky completes high fidelity 3D model of Macy Gallery

CTC student Nicholas Sadnytzky completes high fidelity 3D model of Macy Gallery

CTC student Nicholas Sadnytzky recently finished a 6-month long project that measures the dimension of our student gallery space - Macy Gallery, and recreating high fidelity 3D renderings in details. Nicholas has extensive experience with 3D Modeling in both commercial and educational capacity, and is a certified 3D trainer by rhino3d, a used 3D modeling software widely adopted by industrial designers, fabricators and makers, and digital artists.

Artist Statement:

When I was asked to create a digital model of the Macy Gallery at Teachers College Columbia University, I was very excited to accept this endeavor. There was a condition to this project – I had to use a free CAD program. This restraint was to show that you could model a room (in this instance a gallery) precisely and this method was translatable to the classroom. So, the CAD modeler that I chose was SketchUp 2016. I also accompanied the modeler with another modeler – Rhinoceros 3D. Why I decided to take this path was because I am fluent in Rhinoceros 3D and I knew, no matter the complexity of the room, I would be able to do precise modeling with ease. After receiving the blueprints, my father and I measured a couple of walls to see if the blueprints were correct. Unfortunately, the blueprints were not correct (expect for one wall). During the 2016 winter break my father and I measured the entire gallery. Then I proceeded modeling the gallery twice, once in Rhinoceros 3D and again in SketchUp. You may be thinking, why didn’t I just simply export the model out of Rhinoceros 3D into a SketchUp format? Yes, that would have been the easiest method but I wanted to show that you could model anything precisely in a free CAD program like SketchUp. The final rendering was done in the default Rhinoceros 3D renderer and the animation was done in Bongo. Overall, it was a very fun project.

What's Hudson Lab School?

"At Hudson Lab School, we teach life skills. 
Our goal for our students is to create a life they love. "

Hi, I'm Cate, the founder of Hudson Lab School. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us!

At Hudson Lab School, we're not just teaching school readiness skills. Our goal for our students extends way beyond college admissions. At Hudson Lab School, we're teaching life skills. Our ambition for our students is to create a life they love. By empowering children to trust themselves to figure out what they want and teaching them the process to figure out how to create it, they will have what it takes to lead a well-lived, joyful life. From co-designing their own curriculum, our students will graduate on to designing their own futures. They will have the creativity and courage to take daunting risks, they will grow stronger from life's inevitable failures, and they will endeavor to shape their world through marvelous adventures.

Hudson Lab School is opening at a time when education is at an exciting crossroads. For the first time, top colleges and universities are acknowledging the importance of students' creativity by assessing their portfolios of work collected throughout their high school years. Now students will be forced to think more deeply about what they are learning or accomplishing in school. This admissions process reform will reduce the focus on test scores, and the trickle down effect to secondary and primary schools will be transformative... eventually. (As the education system hasn't changed terribly much since it was first developed in 1893, we should not hold our breath for this transformation to happen.) So not only will Hudson Lab School students have an early start on the path of self-discovery, their portfolios of work—into which they will have poured their passions, hard work and creativity—will also be valued by colleges and universities.

Hudson Lab School opened as a single, mixed-age classroom for children grades K-4 in Fall 2017. We are currently accepting applications for K-5 for the 2018-2019 school year and have plans to expand through eighth grade in subsequent years. Please come visit us and see why our students love learning at Hudson Lab School.
