This fall, seven collaborative teams presented civic technologies at the Wilder Center for CURA:Tech Demo Day.

These teams worked over the summer to develop and test prototypes* of information-based tools that strengthen the community by increasing transparency and access to public decision-making processes, public health information, resources for youth experiencing homelessness, and jobs and training opportunities.

* A version of a tool that may not be fully functioning, but can demonstrate the tool’s design and functionality so it can be tested with potential users.

Congratulations to each of these teams for their committed and inspiring work! 

  • Activist Dashboard (The Center for Earth, Energy and Democracy)
  • The DIAL
  • Neighborhood Street Forum (Cleveland Neighborhood Association)
  • Our City
  • Text For Help Solution (Bridge for Youth)
  • Tuloko Tools (Tuloko)
  • WhatsWerk (Teen Tech Crew)
