Notwestminster 2017

10th & 11th February

The Media Centre, Huddersfield


Notwestminster is a free event for everyone who has something positive to say about local democracy and anyone who is up for the challenge of making it better.

This is an important moment for our democracy. It’s impossible to ignore recent events, which have left many people feeling uncertain about the future. Our response is to say that local democracy starts where we are. There are practical things that all of us can do to be part of the debate, to have a voice in local decisions and to create the relationships that will help us to get things done in our communities.

We think that a stronger local democracy is here for the making. Will you be part of it?

Main event – Saturday 11th February
Our main event includes participant-led workshops, lightning talks, creative activities and lots of opportunities for making contact with others who are interested in local democracy and digital.

Fringe events – Friday 10th February
Fringe events include our Democracy Experiments Day, a practical day of designing and trying out experiments around local democracy. We also have a special PechaKucha Night, featuring a series of fun, quick-fire presentations from members of the Notwestminster network and our friends. 

Who is it for? Everyone…

Notwestminster participants include active citizens, local government officers, councillors, digital makers, academics, young people and community organisations. If you’re interested in local democracy, citizen engagement, open data or civic tech, Notwestminster is for you.
