Event Details

What is the purpose?  Why should I attend?

3. Bring the toughest questions and challenges you're facing and gain insights from other participants.

Participation instructions are at the bottom of this page.



What is an "unconference"?

Unlike standard conferences sessions where people give presentations, unconference sessions are far more conversational.  Professionals will discuss and work through the challenges at the cutting edge of the opengov & civic tech fields.

What is the agenda?

Participants (including you!) create the agenda during the opening session.  This ensures that everyone finds a session that interests them and sets a collaborative tone for the event right from the start.

Who will be there?

Designers, developers, activists, practitioners, and entrepreneurs working at the intersection of civic engagement and technology.  The power of this event is that it will bring together people with different skills.

How will we connect?

  • We will use Slack for group and 1-1 messaging.
  • We will use Zoom for video chat.
  • We will use QiqoChat to enable multiple Zoom sessions at the same time.
