Learn design and prototyping techniques for ‘big picture’ thinking.
Are you passionate about cities and systems? Curious about the potential of open data? The City Infrastructure Lab will show you how open data can be used to develop new models of civic innovation. The knowledge, methods and guidance received can be applied in your own practice to tackle ‘big picture’ systemic challenges.
The City Infrastructure Lab will be led by experts in foresight, urbanism and civic innovation from FutureEverything, Future Cities Catapult and the Digital Catapult. During the event, you will work with your peers to identify opportunities for action and generate ideas in response, mentors will be on hand to help you develop concepts into useable products and services. The outcomes will inform the development of the Greater Manchester Open Data Infrastructure Map.
No prior experience of working with data is required.
About the Map
New Economy and Salford City Council have developed the Greater Manchester Open Data Infrastructure Map. Data originates from both public and private sector stakeholders – as a repository for open infrastructure data, the map and background data can be used to develop new digital services, and as an insight gathering tool for built environment professionals.
The map will be released in May, ahead of the event, but pre-release access can be arranged for participants by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is this for me?
We welcome everyone interested in using new prototyping methods and foresight to drive forwards civic innovation. This is not a technical hackathon, competition or coding challenge, and no special tools, training or expertise are required. We welcome individuals and teams, and encourage an interdisciplinary approach.
This workshop is ideal for:
Planning Professionals / Environmental Designers / Information Designers / Data Scientists / Social and Civic Innovators / Masters & PhD students and academics in the above disciplines
