About Us

Welcome to Open Data Week 2021!

Hosts: Mayor’s Office of Data Analytics, BetaNYC and Data Through Design 
When: Saturday, March 6th to Sunday, March 14th 2021
Where: 85+ virtual events plus a few outdoor and/or week-long events in NYC

Open Data Week is a week-long festival of community-driven events organized and produced by the NYC Mayor’s Office of Data Analytics and BetaNYC. Every year, New Yorkers come together all across the boroughs to celebrate New York City’s Open Data Law, which was signed into law on March 7, 2012. Coincidentally, the first weekend of March is also International Open Data Day. Together, we use both dates to anchor NYC’s Open Data Week and increase civic engagement with our municipal open data.

 

 

About NYC Open Data Week 2021: This year, from March 6 - 14, 2021, we are doing things a bit differently. 75+ event organizers are hosting virtual sessions to engage with you about open data, technology and design. We invite you to check out the program (coming soon!) and RSVP to participate in events all throughout the week, as well as with our friends at Data through Design — which is a week-long art exhibition. #opendataweek
