Time for a happy throwback to October 27! Watch the aftermovie of the day! 

The creative hackathon Designing Democracy is a wrap! We look back at an energetic, collaborative and very successful event at the Dutch Design Week Eindhoven last Friday. Hereby a small report of the day.

What is Designing Democracy?
Our democracy is under pressure. People don’t feel involved, are losing trust in democratic institutions and think democracy is just dropping a vote every couple of years. We believe democracy can – and should – be a great and effective experience! On October 27, 2017, we came together at the Dutch Design Week with some 100 creatives, designers, coaches, experts on democratic issues and voters, to co-create some exciting new answers.

Thanks to all participating designers & creatives and our partners: Gemeente Eindhoven; Ministry of Internal Affairs; NS; KoxkDeVoogd; KING; Gemeente Amsterdam.

And: VANBLEND, Total Identity, EMMA, Afdeling Buitengewone Zaken, Provincie Brabant, Studio Connecting Cultures, Democratic Challenge, Lisa Hu, Frank du Mosch and all design coaches.

And of course: thanks to Hokus Fokus for making the aftermovie!
