What are Design Jams and why should we host one

February 15, 2012 7:00 PM.
Venue: Absolute Hotel, Limerick

Following their journey to Brighton for attending Design Jam Brighton and UX Brighton last autumn, Daniel Beere and William Kennedy will talk about the many insights they gained.

Design Jam (http://www.designjams…) was a one day design event centered on exploring design techniques and teamwork to design an innovative new concept using Open Data.

UX Brighton (http://uxbrighton.org…) was a one day event dedicated to new insights into the growing area of user experience design.

The second part of the meetup will be dedicated to a brainstorming on organising a Design Jam in Limerick this spring.
