Brexit is one of the most controversial and seismic political events in the UK’s recent history. Yet throughout the pre-referendum campaigns and aftermath of Brexit many questions remain unanswered and the future unclear.

Regardless of whether you voted in or out, this two day event is open to the tech and non-tech community to join forces to create dialogue and action beyond Brexit.

We invite you to hack three key themes:

  1. Truth, fiction, & accountability
  2. Tolerance & prejudice
  3. Effective organising & campaigning
