Open City

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Open City is bring­ing togeth­er digit­al, cre­at­ive and innov­at­ive people in Peter­bor­ough to make our city a bet­ter place. It’s a grass­roots, volun­teer led pro­ject, part of the Peter­bor­ough DNA pro­gram­me.

We’ve held a series of events to develop new apps and digit­al solu­tions to increase vibrancy in the city centre and cit­izen engage­ment.

THE RESULTS

The first Hack­a­thon, held in the Cathed­ral pre­cincts, saw over 20 people give up 25 hours each, equat­ing to over £25k in volun­teer time, to col­lab­or­at­ively develop con­tent for the new on-street inter­act­ive city screen.

The inter­act­ive screen aims to share rel­ev­ant inform­a­tion to cit­izens about the city.
