Join a 6 week build cycle where everyone shares weekly updates and works on a projects that excites them. Work mostly online or co-work in-person with other Civics Guild learners in your cohort at learning centres in your city or meet up in London or New York.
Each week you'll post project's updates. The projects that get the most likes & engagement will be invited to the demo day held on zoom on the final week to show off your idea.
If you make it to demo day we'll share the recording of you presenting your project with the whole city as a school network to give you a social boost and connect you to our partners who can help with mentorship and funding.
This is not a course.
Or a step-by-step tutorial or a bootcamp. We won’t show you how to code a web app, how to open up a photo editing software, how to do soldering etc. that knowledge is just a google/youtube search away.
You can participate in a guild after work, during school, between classes. Just show up and publish weekly updates on your social profiles, the best communicated projects will be invited to demo day.
you'll lock down the first version of your idea - depending on your guild you’ll either find a real world problem to solve, build a video game, publish a song to spotify - anything that excites you!
Choose something from our lists of inspiration projects that we scope with our industry partners or something that excites you that you've been dying to work on!
Here's a list of projects we wish existed.
Here's a list of hackathon problems that you can work on for cash prizes.
