We’re happy to announce that we’re playing host to the first Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA) “Policy Hack” day tomorrow morning from 9:30am.
So what is a Policy Hack? It’s a way to bring together policy makers from across the community and voluntary sector, activists, trade unionists, academics, business people, civil servants and members of the public with an interest in the topics to attack issues experienced across a range of themes using a different perspective; the experimental, iterative, and “agile” practices common in the technology and digital creative sectors.
Farset Labs is hosting this programme in our inspirational event space, which should create the atmosphere of open collaboration and knowledge sharing that is often lacking in the rest of the world.
This first event is focused on finding alternative solutions to the current quagmire that is working poverty; where due to a range of factors, individuals and families remain below the poverty line despite being partly or even fully employed.
For more information about NICVA’s programme of events, check out their website. Tomorrow’s event will run from 9:30 to 17:30 and there are just a few spots left, but to express interest in future events, sign up here anyway!
