Panel: The power of the collective (a conversation with the Lady Tech Guild)

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The LTG was formed in 2013, and began as an informal gathering of friends who shared tips, resources and tech support. Forming a group opened numerous doors to us, and has been massively beneficial to us all as artists, business owners and educators. We recently returned from teaching at Makerfest India and would love to share our experiences in building a collective, to inspire audience members to form their own guilds.
