Design Jam Limerick - Let's build Fab City

Design Jam Limerick is a one-day design session during which people will team up to tackle an engaging user experience (UX) challenge: how to change Limerick and its media image in the next few years so that we can turn it into Fab City!

Who should participate?
The aim is to get designers, developers, and members of the public together to learn and collaborate while working on actual design problems.

When and where?
On the 28th April 2012 from 9:30am to 5:30pm, at the Strand Hotel (City View Suite), Limerick.

What is the design challenge?
How to change the perception of the city by using Emerging Technologies and OpenData.

The session champions open-source thinking and sharing. The Design Jam will be a fantastic opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds passionate about the present and future of Limerick.

Participation is free for everybody, but requires ticket reservation via Eventbrite. In order to cover the costs, sponsorship would be greatly appreciated. Sponsors can contribute via Eventbrite as well.

The event is organized by Daniel Beere(@danielbeere) and William Kennedy(@interactionbill), two final year students in the Digital Media Design program at the University of Limerick,  with the support of the IxDA Limerick chapter and the Computer Science Department at the University of Limerick.

    It was a really great day. The event was very well organized with loads of great schwag and great mentors. Coming up with ideas to help solve issues facing the city was great fun. All in all an excellent day out.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
