How can we work together to transform public services?
Do you recycle? Or have you thought about how recycling efforts could be improved in the city centre? Have you given birth in a hospital or used their maternity services? Do you have ideas on how Belfast can be more liveable as more and more people live within the city?
If so, the NI Public Sector Innovation Lab wants to hear from you!
The NI Public Sector Innovation Lab, housed within the Department of Finance, works with other government departments and organisations to design better services.
During the Unusual Suspects Festival, the NI Public Sector Innovation Lab will have an Insight Corner in Castle Court Shopping Centre in Belfast to hear your stories and experiences. By hearing these stories, they will be able to better understand user needs to design better services.
Come along if you have a story to tell. Or come along if you’re interested in learning more about the Lab’s work and their i-dec method- innovation through design, experimentation and creativity. You'll explore what it really means to listen to users and have a chance to redesign public services in Belfast.

TheFestival brings together the 'unusual suspects' from across Northern Ireland and the world, people who wouldn't normally cross paths, to explore how we can work together in new and different ways to create real social change.
