Join Austin Tech Alliance, Glasshouse Policy, A Functional Democracy, Austin Monitor and Open Austin for our annual Budget Party!
Budget Party is a web app designed for mobile devices that teaches you about the City of Austin budgeting process. We’ll start off the evening with an overview of city budgeting, complete with coloring books! Then we’ll break up into groups and invite you to remix how city departments and city services are funded. Each group will present their budget to a panel of judges and one budget will be chosen as the winner.
Stay tuned to our social media to stay up to date with more event details and judge announcements!
To participate in this activity you will need a personal mobile phone. Beer and snacks will be served.
