NMFOG and the City of Albuquerque's present DataFest: ArtQuest!
DataFest: Art Quest includes presentations, workshops, a hackathon, and other activities across two weekends to inform the community about Open Government, Public Arts and Civic Tech. NMFOG, CABQ, and other partners have arranged for a variety of sessions and experiences to help improve our capacity for developing civic tech solutions and increase local engagement with public arts.
Sessions and activities are available for participants with different skill levels and availability. Regardless of time or skills, we have ways for you to get involved!
Note: As the public health response to the COVID19 pandemic evolves, we are exploring ways to involve both in-person and online participation while keeping participants, staff, and volunteers safe. For those who feel comfortable meeting and working together in person, we are requiring masks on-site and making accommodations for physical distancing. On-site participation will require pre-registration and those attendees will receive further guidance and instructions.
If anyone feels ill or is exhibiting symptoms, please stay (and participate) at home!
Presentations and Workshops
Presentations and workshops will inform participants about open government, “no code” and intro to code solutions, as well as public art assets in our community - and some ways information about them can be improved.
For participants with limited time - or limited tech skills - we will have ways to assist the City and the Arts and Culture Department with research and data to improve the information they provide the public.
Visit public arts locations in the Albuquerque area to take and share photos, videos and other information about these sites, the artists and their work.
After learning about local public arts and different assets available, developers and other participants will form teams to create apps and other tools that improve the ways we understand, experience and engage with public art. The hackathon will kick off June 12th at 10:00 AM and conclude with final presentations and awards Saturday, June 19th from 3:00 - 5:00 PM.
