This all-day Hackathon is for writers, coders, UX specialists and multimedia artists of all flavours who want to take part in a mass project to create a web app that will make the South African Constitution more accessible and understandable for all.

Join Hacks/Hackers Johannesburg, TEDxJohannesburg and Design, Share, Party as we create an interactive version of the South African Constitution which will serve to explain all the technical detail, highlight often used clauses and bring to the fore examples of where Constitutional law has been used to make people's lives better.

We need developers, UX specialists, writers, lawyers, artists - anyone who can help develop a working prototype of an online app (mobile friendly) that can help people access the Constitution and tell the story of how it's changed their lives.
