Want to be the next National Geographic photographer? Or learn to build a website, prepare a summer sandwich, knit, cure bacon, or dance like a Bollywood star? Learnapalooza is a summer festival of learning with nearly 100 free workshops across Wicker Park, led by neighbors, business owners, or you. Free workshops will include everything from improv comedy to social entrepreneurship to board games to worm composting and much more. Workshops will be hosted by more than a dozen businesses and organizations, and headquartered at the Wicker Park Art Center. The majority of the workshops are aimed at adults, but there will be a few options for children and families as well. It's a fun, free way to share your passions, learn new skills, and connect with your neighbors. Learnapalooza is a volunteer-organized event and run in partnership with CommuniTeach, a website that makes it easy to learn from your neighbors for free throughout the year.
