WHAT IS CIVIC SPARK DAY?
Civic Spark Day is a time for public innovation – to brainstorm creative solutions to community problems.

YEAH, BUT WHAT’S THE POINT OF CIVIC SPARK DAY?

Our goal is to bring people together and develop new ideas for future Code for Durham projects. We’ve done some cool things so far- help us figure out what to work on next. Learn more at codefordurham.com.

WHO IS INVITED?

This event is open to participants of all skills, perspectives, and experiences. The more, the better! You don’t need to be a programmer or technology expert to participate.
