‣ BIO:
Fang-Jui is a hybrid designer who graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Service Design. They've worked as a multi-dimensional designer covering a wide range of disciplines across diverse industries. The main body of Fang's work focused on digital democracy, public service innovation, citizen engagement, collaborative policy and rule making. They strongly believe that a designer has an obligation to work for the benefit of society, the environment and the economy -- including bridging these areas together.

Newspeak House is an independent residential college founded in 2015 to study, nurture and inspire emerging communities of practice across civil society and the public sector in the UK.

Enter through the eastern-most glass door. We might informally confirm RSVPs.

(We might informally confirm RSVPs, which help attendees to connect after the event, and help us ensure enough food.)

The event will take place on the ground floor. The event space has no steps inside. The main entrance has a 2" lip onto a graded concrete ramp.

g0v London is an exploration of seeding a g0v community in London, UK. We are currently running hacknights roughly every few weeks and, with your support, we aspire to run them weekly.

g0v is a grassroots social movement community dedicated to deepening the civic engagements and connections between the social arena and citizens. It is a decentralised civic tech community with core values of information transparency, open results and open cooperation.

Civic Tech Toronto is a diverse community of Torontonians interested in better understanding and finding solutions to civic challenges through technology, design or other means. They run weekly "civic hacknights for everyone", where people of all backgrounds and skill levels are welcome to attend. (Civic Tech Toronto was in turn inspired by the values and format of Chicago's ChiHackNight. )
