Schedule:

The Jam will kick off at 6 pm on Friday the 9th and pack up at 6 pm on Sunday the 11th.


The kick-off on Friday night will include drinks & dinner - this is where you will meet your fellow Jammers, watch some inspirational speakers, meet your teammates and get the secret theme for the Jam from Global HQ.

Over the course of Saturday and Sunday, your Sticky Fingers Jam team will guide you through the bringing to life of your team's ideas & exploring ways to refine them. Sunday will wrap up with the teams all presenting their final concepts to a small panel of judges - then we talk next steps and how you can all keep up the momentum after the Jam!

What is a Jam?

A jam is a human-centred design-led hackathon. It uses the musical metaphor of "jamming" together, where a team of individuals who are unrelated come together to make great and new music. In a service design jam, the people are the musicians, their experience and imagination the instruments and the music made: novel products and services they could not create alone.

You will learn to use design-thinking methods to rapidly define and refine your ideas. Moving your ideas from concepts to prototypes. Prototyping is where the magic happens. Prototypes make your concept real in the world. They provide a reference that you can test with each other and with your market. Other people can play with your prototype, ask questions, add features, remove features, help you make something that others will be delighted to use.

Jams are about empathy, collaboration and experimentation. They promote co-design and participation. Come and stretch your understanding of what you are capable of creating in 48 hours.

Be part of a global event with more than 100 cities participating!
