Participating in Public: Municipal Software for Online Dialogue and Decision-making
With Arthur Smid and Travis Kiplean

What happens when a city creates a public platform for allocating $100 million dollars? People start to think about their neighborhoods differently. Learn about participatory political processes for decision-making and resource allocation in Reykjavík and Madrid. Arthur Smid will show us the municipal software created to support these processes. These open source projects have already been adapted by American cities. We’ll consider how design can facilitate consensus rather than division. Let’s explore this together and build the practices and software to support democracy.

Portland-based creator Travis Kriplean will share Consider.it, open source software he made for online dialogue. Consider.it helps communities by visualizing what people think and why, enabling large groups to civilly and efficiently align for action and/or identify significant points of departure.
