Participatory urbanism: from built environment to open data

City making is collaborative because the city itself is a fundamentally collaborative endeavor.

This is as true for our emerging conception of the digital city as it is for the built urban environment. However, our current approaches to civic tech and open data in the American city have much to learn from advances in participatory urbanism.

In this talk Sunlight Foundation Open Cities Director Stephen Larrick, a city planner and urbanist turned open government advocate, draws parallels between the history of top-down “”solutionism”” in both physical and digital city-making, arguing that advances in participatory practice from the field of urban planning suggest promising new participatory approaches to open data in city hall.

Smart Cities/Communities Panel 

An inspiring session with four leaders who share a desire to embrace technology and break new ground. Join them and get the inside scoop on what it means to be a smart region and why it’s critical to our future.

Featured Code for NC project

NC Reentry Resources Hub: A Journey From 1 to 100 Counties

The purpose of the NC Reentry Resources Hub project is to provide high-quality information resources relevant and valuable to NC citizens reentering society after a period of incarceration or dealing with collateral consequences of a previous criminal conviction.

In this talk, we will share the journey from the project’s origin as a Code for Asheville project targeting Buncombe County to a distributed collaboration between Code for Greensboro and Code for Asheville (so far) to bring this resource to all 100 North Carolina counties, including our approach to ensuring the sustainability of the project.


One of the best parts of CityCamp NC is the participant-driven unconference, where you can pitch a session topic for the afternoon. Sessions will be held from 1:00 - 5:00 pm.

Don’t be afraid to share ideas. Remember someone once said in a meeting, “Let’s make a film with a tornado full of sharks.”

Hackathon and Code Sprint

 Saturday, September 30 – 9:00 am – 4:00 pm at Nash Hall, Downtown Raleigh  | Code for NC open data hackathon, Code for NC code sprint, and NC DataPalooza open data competition kickoff.
