Details

Welcome back! Let's start off the decade on a positive note by getting to know another amazing local community group: Ottawa Civic Tech! Members of Ottawa Civic Tech have been gathering and working on projects together for four years. During that time, they've fostered civic engagement between citizens, elected officials, and public servants; hosted over a hundred talks, including by a number of internationally renowned speakers, and; developed several unique civic-minded projects, such as the Meeting Cost Calculator, DemocracyKit, Is This Blocked in My Department, and Big Little Contracting.

This social mixer will be an informal way for the communities to meet and get to know each other. We'll start the evening with a short introductory presentation from each group, and then leave the night open for mostly unstructured conversation. We'll have a few back-up activities and games on hand to keep conversations moving, if necessary.
