SC Day of Civic Hacking10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.SC Day of Civic Hacking
Accessible information is useless if it's not pretty - or at the very least, user-friendly. Join us at the CMA to brainstorm designs for delivering public information.

Designers are invited to participate in Design-a-Hack, a competition to produce the best informational graphics featuring data about our area. Here's an example of an infographic:



A team will re-design the museum's online catalogue of collection items to make the content richer and its searches more robust.

What is Hacking?
"Publicly available" information is often the most difficult data to access, although it includes things we want, need, and have a right to know. Learn what these things are and feel the power of knowing how to find and use this information. Hang out with other cool people who want to improve their communities.
