Instructor: Jeff Warren
My name is Jeffrey Yoo Warren, and I am an artist, community scientist, illustrator, and researcher in Providence, Rhode Island.
I collaboratively create community science projects which decenter dominant culture in environmental knowledge production. I host participatory projects, run workshops and give talks on cultural making, collaborative practice, community science, and open hardware. I am also a contributor to over 150 open source code projects, many of which I started and several of whose communities I lead. I’m an illustrator as well as a mentor of programs that support diversity, equity, and inclusion in software engineering, and am Lead Code Community Coordinator at Public Lab as part of this work.
I am a member of AS220 Industries and served three terms on the Open Source Hardware Association board since 2014. I have an MS from MIT and a BA in Architecture from Yale University, and spent much of that time working with artist/technologist Natalie Jeremijenko, building robotic dogs.
AS220 Industries offers needs-based scholarships as well as discounted spots for BIPoC, Emerging Members, and Industries Monthly Members. We believe that everyone deserves access to arts education, and focus on centering marginalized communities and those who have had barriers accessing these resources.
If you are in need of financial assistance to attend our workshops, please fill out this scholarship application before registering for a workshop, and we will get back to you at least one week prior to the workshop session.
We believe that racism is the bedrock of our nation. Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPoC) continue to be adversely impacted by the social systems present in our communities. AS220 is committed to examining how each dimension of racism shows up within our organization, and to work alongside those most impacted by racism to transform AS220 into an anti-racist space where BIPoC are not only centered in our work, but are shaping where we’re going in the future.
We offer a 25% discount for BIPoC. Please use the discount code BIPOC25 when registering to a workshop to access this discount!
