Join Us on October 17th to Design better forms

We’ve all had that experience of filling out a government form, and pausing to ask ourselves, “could they have made this any more confusing or difficult?” Forms are an important way we all engage with our governments, and in Durham we are launching a new effort to make our forms better. We want to have the best forms. Period. And we can’t do it without you.

To kickoff this new effort, on Wednesday, October 17th from 5 - 8PM we invite you to join the City of Durham, other residents, and behavioral scientists from Duke’s Center for Advanced Hindsight to improve the design of government forms so they are easier, simpler, and less confusing. The event will offer residents a fun, interactive opportunity to redesign our forms. The event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP so we can plan for food.
