Opening sessions will be held at the Organization of American States’ Hall of the Americas.  

 

Sessions will be held at these public libraries:

The Festival will offer programming in

3 tracks:

 

1. Participatory Methodologies: How do we improve 

community engagement in project and technology development?  From design thinking to strategies for community art projects or urban development. We are eager to learn from one another on the best way to build with, and not for.

 

2. Active Projects: What technologies and projects are currently 

being used? What is the their impact? Demos of existing projects to increase the knowledge of these public good efforts.    

3. Impact and Scale: How do we start to collect common 

indicators so that we can understand how to discuss impact and, eventually, scale? We all need better ways to understand our individual impact and to understand how we can aggregate our impact to describe change from public good efforts across the globe.
