Kansas City Service Jam

Friday, March 9 @ 4:00 pm - Sunday, March 11 @ 6:00 pm • Organized By Kansas City Service Jam
210 West 19 Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64108


KC outpost of Global Service Jam, a 48-hour world-wide event of simultaneous DOING and MAKING. Collaborate, design services and have a blast March 9-11. 

Anyone can take part. You just need to be interested and have an open, enquiring mind. What can I expect if I attend? A weekend-long workshop to develop new services; including brainstorming, researching, prototyping, and sharing. After revealing the Jam’s secret theme on Friday night, we’ll break into teams and start working. The challenge is to identify and understand a real-world need, ideate and prototype concepts, and deliver a solution by Sunday afternoon. This is a weekend for you to ask “Why?” like a kid, dream big, forget convention, and just make stuff. Furthermore, you will: • Learn more about the service design-based approach to problems • Pick up a load of new ideas and work practices • Meet a bunch of cool people at all levels of experience • Share your work and ideas with your peers both locally and around the world • Have a blast.
