Techne is an arts education organization offering a modular set of workshops that combine art, technology, thoughtful practice, and improvisation. Our workshops source organic, analog and digital realms as tools for expression, and foster confidence in art, science and technology. In our workshops, students learn to listen, dialog, share and vocalize. Students build confidence, self-awareness, group-awareness, problem solving techniques and peer support skills.

Techne was started in 2010 by Suzanne Thorpe and Bonnie Jones, educators and musicians active in electronic music communities in the US and abroad.

Techne’s mission is to democratize technical tools within a safe environment for exploration, risk taking and creative expression.
