#QUESThacks: Community Digital Solutions

Creating New Solutions to Old Problems!

Inspired by the award-winning documentary film QUEST, an intimate portrait of the Rainey family in North Philadelphia, #QUESThacks: Community Digital Solutions 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!

Participants will choose an issue to address, and break out into teams to map out their projects, draft layouts, explore tech tools, design, and more. We’ll keep teams fueled with food and drinks, and by the end of the day, everyone will have started something that will make a difference in their community!

Please join us at this very special "hackathon event" event created by The QUEST Documentary 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.
