PIRATEx worked with the NRW Ministerium für Wirtschaft, Industrie, Klimaschutz und Energie to develop and produce “Makerthon.nrw” a multi-city event series that brought together young people to develop ideas and concepts for improving their cities and neighborhoods.
PIRATEx served as a full service agency for this project, we worked with our partners to create a unique design and digital identity for the project, launching a landing page, creating branded materials, managing registrations and producing each of the on-site events across the region.
Young people taking part in the Makerthon.nrw series came together on-site, where they participated in several activities related to design thinking and innovation development, where they workshopped ideas to bring positive change to their neighborhoods and civil society. These ideas were then shared with local government leaders in the hope of being adopted more widely.
The goal of the project sought to give young people a voice in improving their cities, as well as giving them the tools and creative skills through the “hackathon” process that they could use in the future. Each local event was produced with our innovation partner, Ecodynamics.
Each of the Makerthon.nrw events found wide attention throughout the region and local media. The events brought the community together in a creative way and provided life-long skills to the young people that took part.
