The main goal of CarpentryConnect South Africa 2021 was to build capacity for workshops through instructor training, and establish a network for the regional Carpentries community.
CarpentryConnects are community convenings, organised to bring together community members of The Carpentries that are in close proximity geographically for knowledge exchange, collaboration, and networking.
The first South African CarpentryConnect took place in Johannesburg, South Africa in September 2018. CarpentryConnect South Africa 2021 built on the successes of that first event, with an aim to bring together and grow the Carpentries community in South Africa even further.
The second South African CarpentryConnect was held virtually.
