Welcome to the South Side Hackerspace: Chicago wiki!

We are a group of makers and hackers who have started a hackerspace on the south side of Chicago (in Pilsen). We are seeking hackers, tinkerers, hobbyists, crafters, artists and doers to help us create a social, educational and collaborative space for ourselves and the community. You can learn more about hackerspaces on and Wikipedia. If you have questions about us in particular, check our FAQ.

Ways to get involved

South Side Hackerspace is gathering steam and reaching the point where we can be useful to our members. We are in the Mana Arts Lofts at 2233 S. Throop St #214, Chicago, IL 60608. To find us, enter the parking lot and head to the East side of the building. The main door is up the wooden stairs by the loading docks across from the electrical substation. If that's confusing, click here for directions.

We have some equipment on hand and ready to use, and are currently accepting donations. See something on our Wishlist that you have lying around? Put it to good hackerly use! We offer discounted membership for donations.

If you are interested in becoming a member, fill out our membership application and join our Google Discussion Group.

If you would like to get your hands dirty and become directly involved with our organization, please request access to our Google Discussion Group for information about ssh:c's day-to-day activities and upcoming meetings. You can also find us in the #sshc IRC Channel on Freenode.
