RABBLE: REFRAMING FAMILY VOLUNTEERING FOR THE CITIZEN ERA
Rabble is a kickstarter-style platform, enabling families to find local heritage and culture “volunteering” activities, re-positioned as fun family days out. Starting in one city but spreading across the UK and beyond, sites owned by member organisations will list projects families can help with (e.g. plant trees, build fences, make birdboxes etc). Beneath the surface, Rabble’s spread across the country will be driven by and be the catalyst for an open data revolution in the heritage sector.
Rabble was a finalist in the Open Data Challenge Series Culture and Heritage Prize, and was also selected into the Open Data Institute's 2015 Startups Programme.
