Taking It to the Street: Neighborhood As Interface

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Civic tech, engaged artists, and makers are doing amazing things in their own silos, but what can happen when neighbors and creators step out of their spaces and collaborate? On a grassroots, neighborhood-by-neighborhood level, there’s great opportunity for civic technologists to collaborate with artists engaged in social practice, and for makers to prototype new products, interfaces, and experiences in urban spaces.
Our panel is a dialogue between these creators, exploring what can happen when civic-minded coders, artists, and makers work together. We’ll look at models like the Urban Prototyping festival, examples like SMS controlled holiday lights and DIY traffic counters, and discuss how to connect developers and artists for projects that reimagine their neighborhoods.
