We believe that digital connectivity and skills are a civil rights issue of the 21st century. As part of a broader effort by the Northside Digital Innovation Alliance (NDIA) to ensure that residents of North Minneapolis have access to Internet connected computers and digital skills training opportunities, the NDIA is working to build a Northside Digital Assets website with direct input from North Minneapolis residents that will help residents find places in their communiy to access and learn about information technology.
Please join the NDIA - including Open Twin Cities, the Digital Empowerment Academy, and the Technology Literacy Collaborative - for a working session focused on the Northside Digital Assets website. Learn about the goals of the Northside Digital Assets site from Lanise Block, and hear about findings from the City of Minneapolis’ Community Technology Survey on how connected and comfortable with technology communities around Minneapolis are. After that it will be time to talk about, design, and build a prototype of the website.
What will this prototype be? That’s up to you!
This event is free, and lunch will be provided.
