DATA Play 6 is here and we will be focusing on Arts & Culture Challenges. It will be taking place at Ocean Studies, Royal William Yard.

It is taking place over two days, both days will be covering different things so feel free to come along to one or both of the days, whichever best suits you! :)

Play Time!

Good at coding? - come and code. 
Good at analysis? - come and analyse.
Good at maps? - come and map. 
Good at graphics? - come and draw. 
Good at thinking? - come and think. 
Whatever you’re good at, there’ll be something interesting for you.

Develop your ideas using Council data, create a project and pitch your work... it's free to join in and lunch is provided on both days!

Play as a team, meet people on the day, or experiment on your own - whatever works for you.

The three ideas that have the most potential for the city and benefit/support neighbourhood planning will be given a budget of £2,000 to take it forward.

DATA Play Day 1 was an experiment to test whether the Council opening up data could help understand the city, better support innovation and new ideas and create opportunities for the Council to work with the local tech community.

DATA Play 2 developed these opportunities further by offering financial rewards for ideas, the support of a panel of experts and leaders in the city and a range of workshops to build skills and great ideas.

DATA Play 3 focused on Communities and the three prizes awarded were for the benefit of communities, using communities based data.

DATA Play 4 took a look at Environmental Challenges and resulted in an amazing response with loads of great ideas, from collecting better information about greenspaces to using Minecraft to engage young people and their families with their environment.

DATA Play 5 focused on Health and Wellbeing challenges which resulted in us funding three projects now in their early stages. It was an amazing turn out with people from multiple sectors coming along and sharing expertise alongside the TedMedX conference which was happening at the same time.

This work is supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government through Delivering Differently in Neighbourhoods funding and Local Planning Reform funding.
