GovHack is coming to Far West NSW for the first time. This is a free event open to people of any age and ability. You and your team will have 46 hours from Friday 28th July until Sunday 30th July 2017 to come up with an idea that makes data more accessible to the public – think apps, websites, graphs, artwork, or anything else you might dream up…. It doesn’t have to be a working model – just a great concept fleshed out in whatever creative medium you choose. You could win prizes or cash.

Bring your creativity, skills, ideas, passions, smart phone and laptop – we will provide data, wifi, catering, and a space designed for collaborative blue-sky thinking.

Come to connect with like-minded people, make a difference to the community, have fun, and help create solutions to tricky problems.
