Announcing our venue, and our first supporter

Posted on Updated on

For the second year running, Leeds GovJam will be at the wonderful ODI-Leeds.

You can get a feel for the space by looking through Lisa’s photos from last year’s Leeds GovJam.

ODI-Leeds is a light and open collaboration space on the top floor of Munro House…

There’s loads of room for up to 50 jammers to work in project teams…

And it’s right opposite the bus station and market, making it really easy to take your prototypes out onto the street…

We’re also delighted to announce that Leeds GovJam 2015 will be supported by UKGovcamp Grants.

UKGovcamp is the free, annual ‘unconference’ for people interested in how the public sector does digital stuff. The organisers put some of their left-over sponsorship money into a grants pot each year, and use it to help other similar events get off the ground.

We’re doubly fortunate because UKGovcamp has also supported our sister event, Leeds Service Jam. Thanks!

Could your organisation help to make Leeds GovJam 2015 even better?

Leeds GovJam is run by volunteers, and nobody makes a profit from it. Sponsors and supporters help us keep costs down, open up new possibilities, and provide extra treats and prizes to jam participants.

In return your organisation gets to show its support for public sector innovation in a high-profile and practical way.
