Hack The Economy

Hack the Economy is a joint production of the Bank of England (BoE), the National Audit Office (NAO) and the Office for National Statistics (ONS). We bring together the best data analysts/scientists of three national organisations to spend a day digging into the data to tell us something that we do not know already.

Hack Your FOFO

Today we live in a world where there is more health advice and information available to us than ever before. Yet despite this, the NHS still spends £11 billion annually on managing ill health caused by lifestyle choices, with £150 million spent on late diagnoses of cancer alone. We want to bring together some of the best coders, makers, developers and designers to delve into this newly captured open-data, to come up with mobile/app/tech solutions which encourage people to engage with their health and tackle their FOFO.

This is a digital content production and archive hackathon project funded by the Arts Council England as part of BMAG’s plan to release an image and sound archive for use by others. We are working to ‘hack’ the contents through spoken word, writing and technology responses over a short period of time.
