Birmingham Global Gov Jam
A 48hr design challenge will be set around the world! Ordinary people will bring together their personalities, ideas and skills to create something extraordinary, rethinking public sector services.
Hosted by Spaghetti Jams, for the first time, Birmingham will be joining this innovative, creative and not for profit global community. The Jam is a great way to meet new collaborators and try new techniques and the event is all about having fun learning and making new connections by working together.
How it works
Everyone gathers on Tuesday evening to discover a global theme, which is kept secret until jams all over the world have seen it.
We split into teams and work together through Wednesday and Thursday to design and prototype ideas inspired by the theme.
At 3pm on Thursday everyone shows what they’ve made and shares their work online with a Creative Commons License.
Register your space at the Jam via the eventbrite page.
The tickets guarantee a spot at the Jam, included are snacks on the 9th, breakfast and lunch on 10th and 11th.
To help run events like this the Hub operates a pay as you feel policy, they recommend £5 per participant and this is can be paid in cash during the Jam.
