Centre for Civic Curiosity
be part of the conversation
Digital technology – including Smart City technologies – affect our lives in ways we could not have imagined. Our societies, governments and cultures are all influenced by these shifts. The Centre for Civic Curiosity is a roving engagement hub where the public can come and explore, learn, connect and contribute to the future of their city. It is a space to explore new ideas and grow our understanding of Smart Cities together. This centre will be a cross disciplinary space, led by Smart City, and open to internal and external groups that have an interest in ideas that will shape our city.
The Centre for Civic Curiosity will host a wide range of events and activities from talks, exhibits and showcases, public engagements, workshops, idea jams, hackathons and more.
Join in the conversation! Come and be part of one of Smart City’s upcoming Centre for Civic Curiosity’s activities.

Smart city Glossary
Having a shared language is a key component in having shared conversations. Government and technology are both known for industry specific terms, as well as many acronyms. This list of key terms is intended as both a guide to the Smart City Master Plan and also as an ongoing tool to create understanding between a variety of partners and communities in order to have conversations about technology and its role within our cities.
