Location: The Washington Post headquarters, Washington, D.C.

How does changing technology change the way that media companies and startups parse data from local, state and federal government? That will be the focus of the upcoming Collab/Space DC workshop on November 6, 2014. Sponsored by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute at the University of Missouri and hosted by The Washington Post, it will be an all-day, hands-on workshop focused on open data, politics and government 2.0 — a mix of startups and innovation projects at media companies and even advocacy and non-profits — in the DC area and beyond.

We’ll be selecting eight innovative media startups and projects, which will present in lightning fashion, including questions from the audience. Later we’ll do collaborative exercises — using improv comedy techniques — to learn how to work better together, and break out into groups to help each project get past their challenges. But we’ll also be learning how to take those solutions back to our own workplaces. Plus, we’ll be collaborating with a diverse group of participants, including entrepreneurs, journalists, technologists, designers, marketers, investors and major players in the tech and media scene.
