Event description

Description

48 hours of experimentation, collaboration and learning by doing while having fun and meeting new people from around the world at the same time. There’s nothing like it – the Global Service Jam...

Liverpool Service Jam is part of the Global Service Jam and is open to EVERYONE.

Jammers have 48 hours to work together in teams problem-solving through service design (ie to make something that is socially useful and human-centred). Despite working to a tight deadline, jams are playful, a fun and safe space to try out and learn new things.


This year we're proud to be jamming at Find out – Liverpool's first user research lab

Find out is Liverpool's first open to all user research lab. We want to be much more than just a lab to hire. We are passionate about user needs and helping teams to build the right things to meet those needs. We want to be at the heart of Liverpool's UX and service design community. Whether it's through hosting events like the service jam or Ladies that UX, conducting user research or helping and collaborating with people in the community.

Additionally, our team can help you to solve problems using design thinking and working in an agile way. If you feel you need a better understanding of the problem you are trying to solve, or a better understanding of your users and their needs get in touch. We would be happy to talk to you about running a discovery, a google design sprint or training for your team.

FAQs


Is there an age limit to enter the event?

Yes. You must be 18 or older to take part in Liverpool Service Jam.


What are my transport options getting to the event?

The Tapestry is a short walk from Liverpool city centre and rail stations, the closest one is Lime St.


What hours will the jam be on during the weekend?

The core hours of the jam will be:

  • Friday 29 March 2019 from 6pm to 9pm
  • Saturday 30 March 2019 from 9:30am to 5pm
  • Sunday 31 March 2019 from 9:30am to 4pm


What can I bring to the event?

Pretty much anything! But, all you need to bring is yourself, your ideas and enthusiasm. If you like you could add prototyping materials, cardboard, Lego, play dough, whatever you like. If you like prototyping digitally bring a laptop, camera, or other kit. The space may be busy at times, so make sure you clearly mark anything you want to take home at the end of the event. We can't be held responsible for your personal possessions while in the jam, so anything you do bring along is at your own risk.


What about food and drink?

We'll provide sandwiches and snacks and tea/coffee-making facilities in the jam space. Jammers can bring or buy their own lunch and Liverpool city centre with a wide selection of food options is just a short walk away from the venue.


What if I can't make the whole weekend?

You really need to be there on Friday evening for the kick-off and secret theme video, but after that some participants do just one of the other days - Saturday or Sunday. Please let us know if you intend to do this so we can plan timings and manage the number of participants in the space.


What happens to the things we make during the jam?

At the end of the jam, we'll upload copies of the things we've made to the global jamsite. Everything created during the jam will be released under a Creative Commons License.


Are there any other terms and conditions?

Liverpool Service Jam is part of the Global Service Jam 2019. We ask all participants to confirm that they understand the jam terms and conditions.


Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Message us on Twitter - we're @lpoolservicejam, email the event host, or use the "Contact lpoolservicejam" option on this page.
