Hack the City is about using open data for a better urban and civic experience.
It's a hands-on event to use public data to test and prototype ideas, apps and products that can either reveal something different about your city, or help people find out about and engage more easily with the events, incidents and decisions that affects where and how they live.

There'll be a room full of smart folk to collaborate on ideas with and plenty of refreshments to keep you going, whether you want to prototype a data-driven startup concept, knock together an urban or civic hack or simply experiment with or learn about the data.

Any urban or civic project ideas are eligible at the event, but as in previous events we also support the upcoming Open Data Challenge Series competitions (more info below).
So for this Hack the City we're particularly interested in exploring how open data can be used to engage more people, and more diverse people, in UK culture and heritage.

This edition of Hack the City especially welcomes those who work in or for organisations in the culture or heritage sector, or those that use the services of cultural organisations.
