HACKATHON

 

The theme of the festival “the end of the world as you know it” is an invitation to find inspiration in fiction and playfulness to reimagine the future and stimulate social debate.

For the Hackathon, creators, coders, game developers or curious minds are invited to create an experience about digital activism. With the help of a number of datasets filled with info of previous protests each teams has 2 days to conceptualise and create an interactive project.
