NORDISK PANORAMA HACKATHON
Fri 20 September 19:00 – Sun 22 September 12:00 / MEDEA
Sun 22 September / 14:00–16:00 / Inkonst Klubben
What can be accomplished if a filmmaker, a digital concept developer and a game designer spend a weekend together? Nordisk Panorama gathers 6 teams, who will work together creating a concept and the first live version of selected filmmakers’ ideas for a digital productions to engage audiences in different social issues.
The hackathon philosophy stems from the world of IT and start-ups, where programmers meet and ‘hack’ their ideas and projects – i.e. create temporary solutions and demos – to explore and test their viability.
The six teams will work in a closed workshop, but results will be presented to the public at Inkonst Klubben on Sunday. Don’t miss it!
