Here is a description of the event, from the event Website:

To engage ordinary citizens in lawmaking, complex legislative information needs to be packaged and presented in ways that are understandable, relevant and beautiful. Activists and civic hackers are tackling this challenge, transforming the raw data available on many government portals (or in some cases, in paper documents and PDFs) into compelling narratives and useful advocacy tools. We’ll solicit information about innovative projects as well as strategies for overcoming the technical, political and social challenges of bringing data to the people.
