#QUESThacks: Community Digital Solutions

Kick Off Night

#QUESThacks is bringing community residents and partners together with programmers, web developers, app designers, coders and other tech professionals to help create digital solutions to North Philly’s biggest challenges!

Kick Off Night is an opportunity to mingle with guests and your fellow #QUESThacks participants before the big day! Get inspired by guest speakers and activites to jump start brainstorming project ideas! Tonight is all about thinking, listening and enjoying great food and drinks prepared by The Advocate Café.

#QUESThacks: Community Digital Solutions is a very special “hackathon” event inspired by the award-winning documentary film QUEST, an intimate portrait of the Rainey family in North Philadelphia. It is about fellowship, community, and the creative application of new tools to old problems. It’s about inspiring our neighbors and learning new skills along the way. It’s an opportunity for residents, activists, professionals, artists, and non-profit leaders who may never otherwise work together on a project to meet, appreciate one another’s varied skills, and apply those skills toward making a tangible difference, in our community, in our city.

Created by The QUEST Community Engagement & Impact Campaign, in partnership with Code for Philly, The North Philadelphia Community Healing Project, Resolve Philadelphia, The Village of Arts and Humanities, WURD Radio, POV, the Wyncote Foundation, and The Engage Media Project.
