Deirdre Ni Raghallaigh
Deirdre will provide an overview of what it means to set up The Studio within Dublin City Council and how it aims to act as a bridge between people working in the council and citizens and organisations, who are trying to re-imagine how Dublin city could be run.
Deirdre Ni Raghallaigh heads up the Studio – Dublin City Council’s in-house innovation unit. The studio works on redesigning public services; developing new forms of public engagement and testing ideas new to the council. She co-founded Dublinked-the Dublin Regional Open Data Network with colleagues in neighbouring local authorities. Deirdre has worked previously for the City as a librarian, press officer, communications manager and in area management in the North Inner City.
