Open House: July 2022

7 July 2022

8:00 am-9:30 am

We're back to in-person events!

After two long years of hosting Open Houses online, we'll finally be getting together in person to chat all things civic tech. Not located in Melbourne? Don't worry, this is a hybrid event, so you'll still be able to watch and participate online.

What is Open House?

Get your fix of #CivicTech inspiration by learning about the magic our team have been working with their government partners. We invite you to bring a beverage or some food of your choosing and enjoy the presentations.

At the end of each presentation, there'll be a chance to ask any questions you might have about the program or project area, provide feedback and chat with other civic tech makers. It will be a time of discussion, cross-pollination and inspiration.

Here's what you can expect:

6:00pm - An opportunity to mingle before we kick off presentations! We'll have refreshments available so you can meet some awesome new people while you're with us.

6:30pm - Our presentations will kick off!

7:00pm - More time to mingle!

At the end presentations, there'll be a chance to ask any questions you might have about the program or project area, provide feedback and chat with other civic tech makers.

Sounds great, how do I join the event?

This is a hybrid event, which means anyone located in Melbourne can join is in-person, and those who can't make it will be able to participate online

The Melbourne CBD location will be announced shortly, and if you're joining us online you'll receive information on how to join the Zoom call the day before the event.
