Hacking Culture Bootcamp

If you enjoyed the last “Hacking Heritage” event and are now looking for the next hackathon experience, take a look at the Hacking Culture Bootcamp. Kelly Mostert from the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid just informed us about the event – and it looks super interesting:

Are you a true storyteller, a lover of culture and interested in innovative multi-media platforms? Join the Hacking Culture Bootcamp to create new multi-screen experiences and win an intensive business workshop in London, hosted by the British cultural entrepreneurs behind Remix!

Culture heritage = engaging stories
Bring history lessons alive, make games for the museum, or play with art in a public space. Anything multi-screen is possible! We are offering you the chance to develop your innovative ideas, together with a team of strong thinkers and expert makers.

A new playground for content developers
Play and experiment with thousands of items from Europe’s most compelling digital collections, also known as Europeana. You will have access to the entire Waag Society’s Fablab. Do you want to create a prototype? No problem. You can make use of all the machines, from 3D printers to laser cutters. The Hacking Culture Bootcamp is part of the Europeana Space project.

Participation is free of charge. We only ask that you write a short motivation. The participants of the Bootcamp will be selected before the 1st of March. More background information, preparation & skills and registration can be found here.

Friday, 2015, May 8 – 4:00pm to Sunday, 2015, May 10 – 4:00pm

Waag Society, Nieuwmarkt 4, 1012 CR Amsterdam
