Participate: We like friendly people who like to think about how things work.
We are not equipped to accept visitors outside of our public nights. Please come to the public nights or email us to set up an appointment.
Craft Night happens almost every Thursday from 6:30pm and every Monday from 7:30pm until we get tired and go home. These are our public nights, stop by and meet people, share knowledge, and work on your projects. Don’t forget to bring a project to work on! Please check the calendar and read the front page of the blog for announcements and changes.
We also teach classes and have occasional parties where we dress up. Come by and say hi during a public event, we’d be happy to meet you and show you around. Check our EventBrite page and our Google Calendar for upcoming events. You can also join our Facebook group and read this blog to stay informed.
Membership: Resistor is a private space in which members pay monthly dues. Membership to the core group of NYC Resistor is invite-only. If you’re interested in joining, come get to know us. We have a bunch of public events like Craft Nights (see above). Come and learn, share what you’re hacking on, and meet other NYC Resistors. After a while if we have a space open in the group and it’s a good fit, you may be invited to be a member.
Friends of NYCR is a way for non-members to support NYCR. It is completely optional, and immensely appreciated. If you enjoy our public events, classes, and craft nights, consider becoming a Friend of NYCR.
Accessibility: There is a short set of stairs leading to our building’s front door (5ish steps). Resistor is located on the fourth floor. If you would like to use the elevator, please ring the buzzer and a member will bring the freight elevator down; otherwise, you will need to use the stairs.
If you’re visiting us, we ask that you abide by our code of conduct:
Welcome to NYC Resistor. We are here to learn, share, and make. We want everyone to feel comfortable asking questions, trying new things, and making mistakes. We ask that your conduct be guided by the desire to help us create an inclusive, encouraging, and diverse environment free of intimidation and harassment. We are an eighteen and over facility.
Comments, actions, or visual displays which demean, harass, or insult others are not permitted. This includes those which target a person’s race, creed, ethnicity, age, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical appearance, or ability.
NYC Resistor reserves the right to summarily eject you if you recklessly endanger others, act in violation of the code outlined above, or otherwise behave poorly.
If someone is abusive or causes you to feel uncomfortable, speak to a member or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This code of conduct is neither exhaustive, nor complete. It serves to distill our common understanding of a safe, collaborative space.
