Chicago IA/UX Message Board › Introducing CivicLab - a Civic Co-Working and Makerspace!
|A former member||
Hello IA/UX designers!
I'm new here, but here none the less to announce that CivicLab, a Civic co-working and makerspace is now open!
CivicLab is a space that brings together a community organizers, educators, designers, makers, artists, and technologists to co-work, research, teach, build community and create tools. Together, we work to increase civic engagement, foster direct participation and empower neighborhoods. CivicLab offers a space for co-working, classes, community events, and MeetUps. We have co-working space at great rates, and offer classes and events as well.
We've gots to get some IA/UX love in here! More and more computers are proving themselves to be a potent accelerant for community change. There's a lot of work to be done in information architecture for all of the data that is now available, and equally as much in the field of user interaction to make sure that the tools developed are easily accessible and intuitive. In addition to co-workers in the space, we'd love to have any teachers on all aspects of design. We're open to all ideas!
