civic-hacking-leimert-thumbIn celebration of President Obama’s National Day of Civic Hacking on June 2nd, here in Leimert Park we are hosting “We Can Fix It — an Urban Tech Block Party.”

For details, see our description from the national website:

In celebration of the National Day of Civic Hacking we will be highlighting the essence of Leimert Park’s creative fortitude and striving to enhance Leimert Park’s Digital Footprint as a catalytic Cultural Center for the preservation of the arts within our cultural Diaspora.

The goal for the weekend is to coalesce the urban community around the benefits and opportunities that the new economy brings to our community. The Urban Tech Block Party will use free, publicly-released data, code and technology to solve challenges relevant to our neighborhood and city; to create awareness of the Leimert Vision Network, the Cultural Data Project, and other business development and social network sites in our community.
