I want to facilitate a financial discussion on creative ways to fund long-term community bicycle projects, ranging from Do-It-Yourself workshop spaces to youth programming to whatever else you're up to in your city/town/village.
Background: Pierre is a volunteer member of the Spokeland Bicycle Cooperative, a DIY nonprofit (501c3) bicycle workshop in Oakland, CA. Spokeland's biggest expense is rent, followed by new parts/accessories purchasing. These expenses are funded primarily through the exchange of used bicycles and parts for monetary donations. Spokeland is open for at least 11 hours every week, and at least 3 days per week.
A discussion on working together with other organizations in your city, region, or network25 personnes s'intéressent à cette présentation.
We'll host a discussion on why and how to collaborate with other organizations in your home city or region. Volunteers and staff from several community bike shops in Toronto and Vancouver will share how we're already meeting regularly, cooperating on launching a standardized survey, and sharing resources.
We also want to hear about your experiences (or hopes) of working with other organizations in your city, region, or network! Discussion questions we'd like to explore include: do you already collaborate? What are some benefits and barriers to working with other shops? What are some collaboration best practices? How do you motivate people to come to meetings? What are some ways to share resources among shops of different sizes and structures? And do so equitably?
Attracting and Maintaining Volunteers73 personnes s'intéressent à cette présentation.
Volunteers are the heart and muscle of many organizations. With so many causes, efforts, projects out there for people to commit their valuable time and energy, how do you attract excellent volunteers to your organization? More importantly, once someone shows up once, how do you keep them coming back?
During this discussion, we will start by breaking down what gets people through the door in the first place. I will share my own experiences through bicycle and food security organizing and encourage a discussion among participants. We will then explore aspects of what keeps people coming back, growing with the organization, and really making it a part of their lives.

Bikes for All! Increase access and minimize barriers to the bicycle as a vehicle of change67 personnes s'intéressent à cette présentation.
Join me in a discussion of the process involved in organizing youth and adult community bike giveaways - diverting bicycles from the waste stream and through predominately volunteer hours returning them to members of our community who do not have access to a bicycle - for free!
In partnership with community organizations and public schools, in 2017 over 650 participants received bicycles in SE Seattle and beyond through Bike Works programming. Ranging from 351 youth ages 2 - 8 in Kids Bike-O-Rama, 78 youth between 3rd and 5th grade receiving free or reduced lunch in Seattle public schools through UGottaGetABike BMX bike-giveaways, and 229 low-income adults over age 18 received a commuter bike, lights, lock, and a helmet through our Bikes for All! program.
We will walk through the procurement, triage, staff and volunteer labor, application process, scheduling, and day-of logistics for coordinating multiple, recurring community bike events. We've learned a lot about facilitating community bike events but still face challenges like day-of attendance and best practices for registration.
I'll lead the conversation with detailed examples of processes and arrangements we've had success with and open it up for others to share their successes and challenges.

Conflict resolution with staff and customers11 personnes s'intéressent à cette présentation.
This is intended to be an open discussion about how different shops handle conflict resolution between their members, and how they handle difficult "customers".
Bikerowave, open mainly at night, certainly has a large number of intoxicated, beligerant, and sometime very "olfactory challening" folks coming in our doors. How do you deal with these situations in your shop?
Also, how do you deal with interpersonal conflict within your organization? Do you have a board that votes to ban or suspend access? Is it left to the entire membership? Do you use moderators?

Experimentaciones e invenciones pedaLúdicas26 personnes s'intéressent à cette présentation.
El conocimiento es el resultado de un juego de confrontación entre el instinto y el saber. Esta batalla genera un compromiso que emerge a partir de un choque, explosión descarnada que da lugar al conocimiento.
Nos centraremos en el problema del armado de un laboratorio que piense y replantee los límites de la bicicleta como herramienta cultural con el objeto de proponer acciones urbanas. La bicicleta como laboratorio de experimentación, siempre en movimiento, rodando, permitiéndonos entender el mundo de diferentes maneras.
Presentaremos tres proyectos de estudio en desarrollo en nuestro taller. Cada uno propone un dispositivo particular, producto de la sinergia de oficios y saberes distintos, donde nuestra querida amiga la Bici es siempre el punto de partida. Nos preguntaremos cómo armar un taller horizontal y heterogéneo, donde los aportes de lxs participantxs confluyan armónicamente para lograr un nuevo gran (bici) invento.
Proyecto Z: bici para rodar sobre rieles ferroviarios, que experimenta una relación con el paisaje diferente. Viajar con la Bici por lugares no usuales desde perspectivas únicas.
Proyecto G: bici con capacidades de expresión gráfica, deja huellas al andar: dibuja, mancha, llena de color su camino.
Proyecto N: bici nocturna que recolecta y transforma la energia ambiental (ondas de luz y sonoras) condicionando su cadencia y andar según los estímulos registrados, tocando música y proyectando otra luminosidad por la ciudad.
ALGUNAS PREGUNTAS: se trata de inventar la bici como dispositivo para registrar el habitar urbano desde otro lugar? la bici es un habitante urbano? en bici somos distintos habitantes? somos centaurxs cuando montamos nuestras bicis?

Hosting Art Workshops - and fun things to make with Bike Tubes24 personnes s'intéressent à cette présentation.
What can a recycled art program add to your community project? At BICAS art is an important part of what we do, but you don't need any fancy resources to integrate simple recycled art projects into your community bike shop. Art projects are a great way to engage youth, elders, and creative community members. We will present easy straight-forward projects that you can bring out to events, schools or use as a fundraiser!
In this workshop, we will be making hands-on craft projects from old bike tubes and simple tools.
How do you do what you do?20 personnes s'intéressent à cette présentation.
Several cooks at Los Angeles Bicycle Kitchen went on a field trip to another community bike shop recently that operated very differently from us, which got us thinking how many different ways are there?
For example, Bicycle Kitchen/La Bici-Cocina has six stands with six different colored tool boards, each with its own set of tools open to all for use ranging from various wrenches (in which 15mm mysteriously disappears) and hex keys to headset cup remover and brake centering tools.
