What happens when artists and technologists team up to generate positive social impact? What is "civic engagement" and how can art and technology become a forum to enable it? How can art and technology improve our understanding of the places we live and the challenges that we face together?
Attend the Nov. 15 Art + Civics + Code Hackathon to collaborate on a variety of projects that address contemporary issues in public life. This event is an experiment in supporting collaborative, cross-discipline projects that not only generate creative ideas for the Seattle community but also inspire civic leaders from across the country to re-think how nonprofits, governments and volunteers can leverage art and technology to benefit society.
Project and topic ideas:
Participatory or collaborative art, critical interventions, projection mapping, data visualization, generative art, privacy and surveillance, public art
