Event description

Description

Calling all coders: can you help Momentum? We're the movement that supports Jeremy Corbyn and a new kind of politics - to increase participatory democracy, solidarity, and grassroots power. We've teamed up with Outlandish, a tech co-op from North London and friends of Momentum who are engaged with producing tech projects for social change. Their current fellowship is helping to support small projects get off the ground and encourage community development.

The aim of the hack day is to bring together techies, Momentum members, and techie Momentum members and other experienced campaigners to build grassroots campaigning tools. We have some gaps we know about and ideas for things we'd like to create - and we're really open to all your ideas that we might never even have thought of.

We'll discuss the different ideas, and create teams to do a little bit of initial work on them. There are two £1,000 prizes for the most feasible and useful projects to help with delivery so that the tools are used to make a difference for the upcoming Labour leadership vote. Any other projects delivered from this session will be gratefully received and used to make a difference.

Draft agenda:
10.45am: Registration and introductions
11.15am: Welcome from Momentum and Outlandish. What kind of tools are we looking for? Who will use them and for what?
11.30am: Planning and brainstorm
1pm: Lunch
2pm: Build - quick mini-projects and proofs-of-concept
4pm: Presentations
5pm: Go home/to the pub/to the park
