Learn to design a better Austin with an introduction to civic technology and hacking, open data, Open Austin & other civic efforts. Identify and brainstorm possible solutions for a civic problem.
Facilitators: Victoria O'Dell, Celine Thibault and Amalie Barras
Innovation in design is about more than pixels. It's about building processes that break down silos between designers and non-designers, and working collaboratively with people that have different skill-sets and professions for a common good. Austin is a hot spot for innovation in tech and design and there hasn't been a better time to design a better Austin through real community collaboration.
In this workshop, you'll learn about civic hacking and how it fits into designing solutions for our city and community - and then you'll put the lessons to work. You'll collaborate in a group to identify and brainstorm possible solutions for a civic problem.
Learn how you can participate in the community through the use of design, technology, policy, and community collaboration.
