What is Changify Shoreditch?
Over the weekend of 14-16 December, we are going to Changify Shoreditch, with two days of citizen reporting, rating, data collection and creative problem solving.
Changify it - Hack the hood!
For one weekend, you turn citizen journalist: Exploring past, present and future Shoreditch, collecting and sharing issues and inspirations you notice, mapping them to build a local realtime index and crafting solutions.
These solutions turn into projects supported by 1-minute pitch videos. Feedback will be given by our expert judging panel; then the projects will go forward to find backing on Changify from the local community and brands.
