In the Dreamy Crowdsourcing & Crush-worthy Engagement panel at SXSW 2016, you’ll hear real details from four citizen science & historical crowdsourcing projects on how to rally your fans for meaningful contribution. Then learn why openly sharing resources & involving participants in design builds better spaces for engagement and research.
