Experimental Modes of Civic Engagement
in Civic Tech is an investigation into what
it means to build civic technology with, not for, real people and real communities. It answers the question, “What’s the difference between sentiment and action?”
The project was conducted by Laurenellen McCann, and it deepens her work in needs- responsive, community-driven processes for creating technology for public good.
This is a project of the Smart Chicago Collaborative, a civic organization devoted to improving lives in Chicago through technology. It was funded by a Knight Community Information Challenge Deep Dive grant given to The Chicago Community Trust by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
