Are you an organised, creative person who likes working with people? Do you want to work in tech for good? KWMC is Bristol’s Living Lab, where citizens, artists, technologists, businesses and public sector organisations can come together to create ideas, tools and technologies that address local challenges, innovate and explore new possibilities. We are impact-focused, bringing together diverse stakeholders to engage in creative collaborations that generate positive solutions for people, inclusive prosperity and the planet.
