We're pleased to announce the theme for our LA event is Future Cities.
Learn Do Share (formerly known as diy days) returns to Hub LA for 3 days full of talks, workshops, labs, hacks and networking. The event is focused on how storytelling, play, design thinking and creativity can be harnessed as an engine for social innovation and civic engagement throughout the city of Los Angeles.
Join us as we explore how we can prototype new ways citizens can productively work with government. Learn Do Share LA will engage community activists, data scientists, policy makers, academics, entrepreneurs and storytellers in an effort to tackle city-wide challenges. Through the use of open data we will create solutions that further our local economy while bettering our communities.

Join us for a four day event that engages a diverse group of citizens in a participatory design process that focuses on empathy, storytelling, and play in order to craft detailed design challenges
The main event – on Oct 12 – is split into a 3 act structure
LEARN (keynotes, case studies and fire side chats)
DO (workshops, labs and hacks)
SHARE (a collaborative action by the day’s participants)
We’re looking for Workshop, Lab and Hack proposals for Learn Do Share LA. Everyone is welcome to submit a proposal. Individuals and / or teams are also welcome to submit. The structure is flexible but the proposals should relate directly to our core theme of FUTURE CITIES.
Civic Innovation Lab Hub LA – part design lab, part community caucus, part accelerator of urban solutions – is dedicated to the development of real solutions designed with and for communities throughout Los Angeles. This lab will pilot a new model for civic engagement and the acceleration of urban solutions utilizing available government data and the ingenuity of engaged citizen stakeholders.
Join a group of diverse thinkers & doers (storytellers, game designers, hackers, educators, policy makers, community leaders, architects, scientists, futurists, and students) for a special two day lab prior to the main event. The lab harnesses storytelling, play, design thinking, collaboration and co-entrepreneurship as tools for social innovation. Space is limited to 50 participants so slots can fill quickly.
Civic Innovation Lab launches with an open call to community members interested in joining a diverse group of stakeholders in a discussion about city-wide challenges, the process of collectively developing new solutions, and learn how Open Data within the City can provide us with insights.
We are looking for volunteers to help us with registration, speaker coordination, social media, AV / Tech support, photographers and folks to shoot video. It’s because of people sharing their time and talent as volunteers that we’re able to keep the events FREE. Not only do you help the event but its a great way to meet new people and potential collaborators. For more info please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking for writers, graphic designers, photographers, copy editors, data scientists and creative technologists for the the LEARN DO SHARE book series that will be produced from the Los Angeles labs / events.
LEARN DO SHARE is a book series that captures design and storytelling experiments that come out of our labs and events. It’s a narrative exploration into our ethos and open collaborative design process. The results are rather unusual look-do-and-think-books that explore the methods we used, pitfalls we encountered and lessons we learned when we try all kinds of games and methods to trigger social and civic innovation.
