Civic Tech YVR #14 | Culture and the Digital Economy
Civic Tech YVR #14 | Culture and the Digital Economy Welcome back to the 14th Civic Tech YVR Meetup! We hope everyone is enjoying the Fall season and we're excited to get back into digging into the overlap between technology and public life. This month we're interested in culture and the digital economy. We're proud to be hosting Alberto Lusoli, who is a PhD candidate at Simon Fraser University, School of Communication. Before embarking on his research journey he spent almost ten years working in startups and digital agencies. His current research project, Labora is aimed at exploring the cultural dimension of the startup economy, particularly in Vancouver. Currently, Alberto is studying how people working in startups maintain employment and mobility within the fluid labour market of the network economy. Alberto will be presenting his research so far on this topic. After Alberto’s talk, the floor is open to all - anyone looking for support for their initiatives is free to share and make asks of the community. There will be ample time for discussion. If you're reading this and doubting whether you're 'civic' or 'techie' enough, fret not. Everyone is welcome to come listen, learn, and participate at any skill level. We're here to make these topics more accessible. We seek to contribute to civic good through technology, data, design, policy, advocacy, citizen engagement... the list goes on. If any of that is of interest to you, you should come! A huge thank you to our venue partner, STAT Search Analytics! --- Agenda: 6:30pm - Doors open 7:00pm - Welcome, Civic Tech YVR introductions 7:15-7:45pm - Alberto Lusoli 7:45-8:00pm - Q&A 8:00-8:05pm - Break 8:05-8:25pm - Open Discussion 8:25pm - Announcements 8:30pm - End

    What we're about

    Join the conversation in our Slack team: (

    We are people interested in examining civic issues through the lens of design & technology. This looks like: regular meetups with speakers, open discussions, and sharing of projects that are making a difference in civic issues in Vancouver.
    What we're building towards is a community that provides support for one another in projects that impact civic issues. We'll provide the space in which people can reliably get together to do that.

    If you'd like to get involved, join this meetup group and/or our Slack team to stay in the loop for opportunities.
