Description

Imagination Lancaster is organising two ‘Cities Design Jams’ in central London that will focus on diverse themes within cities.
20 February 2014 – Services in the City (Open Data) Design Jam
30 April 2014 – Health and Wellbeing in the City Design Jam

This Cities Design Jam examines Open Data to develop new services that aim to improve the lives of the city citizens.

The event brings together London-based businesses from across the digital and creative industries to co-create commercially viable ideas that will shape cites and enhance the lives of their residents.

During this 12 hour interactive event, you will gain insight into:

- Making the most of co-creating innovative products and services
- Getting new perspectives through working with multidisciplinary teams
- Enhancing residents’ lives using people centred design
- Being immersed in these exciting new sectors of the creative industries

The event will include talks from business and academic experts and mentors will be there to help the teams. At the end of the day, the teams will pitch their ideas to a panel of industry experts and there will be a prize for the best idea.  Previous experience of design is not a requirement to participate in this exciting event. All aspects of the intellectual property of the work produced during the Cities Design Jam are owned by the team members that developed them.

This 12 hour event includes lunch, dinner and refreshments.
