The Intelligence Service

Can we re-route surveillance capitalism to serve rather than observe citizens?

While a new push for privacy and control over our data and personal content is underway, how can we create a future where advances in technology and data use benefit all rather than the few?

Join The Intelligence Service as an undercover agent in this hands-on workshop, which will see the Meat Market Hub’s auditorium transformed into an operations centre. Working in a team, you will be inducted, given a code name and a piece of evidence to help you solve the challenges that face society in this new age of surveillance. Pitch your solution at the end of the event – the best solutions will receive a reward.
