National Hack The Government is Rewired States founding hack day,  every March, we get together faces old and new to play with open government data and hack ways of improving transparency, communication, efficiency and relationships between the government, technologists and citizens. The aim is to engage communities by creating apps, websites and products that help improve services in and for the government.


We hope to involve as many organisations who are doing great work in the civic area as possible.  At National Hack the Government 2014 we hosted 250 people, in London, Exeter, Glasgow, Leeds and Bournemouth.  We hope to grow the community further and strengthen its outcomes year on year.
