Cultural Hackaton

27 – 28 June 2015
On the 27 and 28 June, ACKspace, Bureau Europa and Maastricht University will organize a Cultural Hackathon! During this event, participants with different skills sets and levels can work together on an innovative project. Explore and develop your creativity through workshops, group discussions and more!

Workplace for the New World
The Cultural Hackathon will take place in the Workshop for the New World, an exhibition on the future of work, robotization, the creative industries and the democratization of knowledge and digital media.

Game Project
In one of the workshops led by ACKspace, we will develop a game that will be displayed at the exhibition – but you are more than welcome to develop your own ideas as well.

Is it for me?
No matter your skill-set or interests, there is something for everyone: scenario-writing, music, dialogue, video, drawing, programming, design, photography, and more.

Bureau Europa, Timmerfabriek, Boschstraat 9, in Maastricht
