Richard Pietro socializes Open Government & Open Data by creating Civic Engagement as Art through his company OGT Productions. Some of his projects include the 2014 Open Government Tour and “Open” – The World’s first short film on Open Government, Open Data, and Open Source.
He also worked collaboratively with the Ontario Ministry of Housing to develop a new way for creating, publishing, and activating Open Data sets (a process he calls “Open Data in Reverse”). This initiative even helped the government win a nationally recognized award for engagement.
Most recently his Open Data Iron Chef workshop has garnered attention due to its innovative way for introducing Open Government & Open Data to students at both the secondary and university levels.
