Unleashed locations

In 2016 Unleashed was run across several locations in the state:

Unleashed themes for 2016

Unleashed Premiers Award - Entrepreneurs

Designed to engage our digital entrepreneurs to commercialise and advance their winning concept. This includes the Story tellers and Makers categories (below) as well as any other creative reuse of data via apps, websites, data visualisation tools etc.

The Arts Unleashed - Story Tellers

A 'story telling arts' category for those interested in humanities and social sciences, will encourage filmmakers, historians, game designers, marketers and visual artists to use Open Data to create works of art that tell a story in any form.

Machinery of Data (MOD) - Makers

Makers, artists and crafters will build machines, electronic gadgets and art that is driven by, reacts to and is inspired by Open Data.
