Join SFPC at the Electronic Cafe for Poetic Computation on August 12 from 12-6pm for Community Day! Community Day is the celebration of Electronic Cafe for Poetic Computation: an internet cafe and classroom where community members and attendees will have participated in a series of workshops and community events exploring creative, inclusive, and liberatory uses of network technology within an abolitionist framework.
