A holistic professional development program, the Lab engages with the technical, social, and ethical dimensions of municipal arts administration:
- Technical: We iterate and test new modes of information sharing and data analysis. We maximize the utility of open source, browser-based technologies, and the City’s Open Data.
- Social: We demonstrate agile project development, foster collaborations across functional teams, and spark ideas by sharing our process via the CC BY-NC 4.0 License.
- Ethical: We reflect on the tools, process, purpose of public service. We also think about rights, privacy, accessibility, and other ethical issues related to the current trends in technology, economics, and culture.
