Provisional programme for 2017

IMG_0066From last night’s planning meeting we now have a provisional programme for 2017 and it is quite an ambitious one. What is great from our perspective is that there is a continuation of a number of themes that we have been looking at over the last year and a resurfacing of perennial ones. Highlights include the ‘making and doing’ workshops that have been developed as part of the Echo Chambers and ‘Post-Fact’ Politics programme and the Visualising Data workshops. There are a number of sector and technically specific events but one to watch out for is alternative ways of looking at the world which will be a day of walks, talks and explorations. As always there is a large dose of how data and technology impact on society and much more.

This is a provisional programme and we are looking for as much input as possible (Dates and sessions are subject to change). Please click on the Google Doc and add comments. We are looking for people who can contribute, sponsors, venues and partners.

Help build Open Data Manchester’s programme for 2017

It is the time of year when we step back and take a look at what we’ve done over the past year, look at what’s happening in the world of data, and plan for 2017.

Open Data Manchester is a community of many diverse interests from transportation to politics and everything in between. The events that we put on are representative of this and driven by our community. You want more visualisation? You got it. You want more health? It’s on the list. You want more democracy? We can do that too. We need people to help programme and deliver these events – after all it is what we have been doing since 2010.

Come down to Spaceport X on the 29th and help make a great programme for 2017.
