Centre for Civic Curiosity

Digital technology – including Smart City technologies – affect our lives in ways we could not have imagined. Our societies, governments and cultures are all influenced by these shifts. The Centre for Civic Curiosity is a roving engagement hub where the public can come and explore, learn, connect and contribute to the future of their city. It is a space to explore new ideas and grow our understanding of Smart Cities together. This centre will be a cross disciplinary space, led by Smart City, and open to internal and external groups that have an interest in ideas that will shape our city. 

The Centre for Civic Curiosity will host a wide range of events and activities from talks, exhibits and showcases, public engagements, workshops, idea jams, hackathons and more.

Part of the Centre for Civic Curiosity is engaging with the community through events and activities to collaborate, increase literacy about data and Smart City, and to converse about innovations. The Smart City Open Data Showcase allows the Smart City team to share and showcase products and analysis that have been developed by the community during Centre for Civic Curiosity events.
