About Open Seattle

Who we are

We welcome anyone who is interested in using technology to make civic improvements. Artists, writers, entrepreneurs, leaders, creative thinkers, and coders are invited to civic hacking nights and other events hosted by Open Seattle.

What we do

Open Seattle runs events focused on building the civic technology community in Seattle and building prototype solutions for local civic issues.


We meet on the fourth Wednesday of every month to talk about and work on civic tech projects - come join us! Stay in the loop about our meetups and other events by joining our Meetup group.


Check out our project gallery, or browse new project ideas (and submit your own!). Sign up for the Open Seattle email newsletter to get updates about our projects and the latest news. We send emails no more frequently than twice a month.
