It’s our pleasure to announce import•io is supporting the Rewired State: Parliament Hack 2012, taking place at The Houses of Parliament and The Hub Westminster this coming 24th and 25th of November 2012. Attendees will be given access to import•io’s data technology and supported with data workshops. Parliament has a lot of data, not all of which has been explored, and we’re looking forward to seeing what attendees create.
This is the second annual Parliament Hack, and coincides with Parliament Week. Parliament Week is a new national initiative which aims to build greater understanding of and engagement with parliamentary democracy in the UK. As with last year, there is a tour of Parliament followed by an explanation of the work of Parliamentarians, and then a rallying cry at which point the hacking begins!
This is an open hack event for people of all ages who want to get involved. The doors are open to designers, games developers, and anyone who can build something.
