WHAT IS HARTCKATHON?

Art hackathon is a 1-day idea generation event to create digital innovations that would make modern art interesting, fun and engaging. This event is a collaboration of MO Museum (to be opened in 2018 in Vilnius) and LOGIN festival. It is a response to the perception of a museum as a boring place and art as being hard-to-understand, irrelevant to the viewer. We believe that the museum may be a place for social interaction and inspiration. There are numerous ways to get people interested in modern art, especially employing digital technologies, and thus, we invite you to be a part in pathing a way to this future museum. The outcome of the hackathon should be an idea for fun or interesting art related object/ digital/tech tool/game.

WHO?

You. Whether you come from a technical/digital or from an art/creative background – all you need is an interest in modern art or culture. You don’t have to be an art historian as well – general curiosity and open-mind is enough. There will be a pool of  mentors (to consult with) and participants (to team-up with) from the fields of art and tech.

HOW?

During the hackathon:

  • Form up into teams (or come with your own)
  • Come up with best ideas how to make art interesting and engaging
  • Get mentor feedback on idea and pitch
  • Pitch it to jury
  • Best team wins €1000 prize

After the hackathon:

  • Get support from the MO Museum to develop your idea
  • Create at least a prototype
  • Test/present the prototype during LOGIN festival

After LOGIN festival:

  • Create a working product
  • Showcase your product during the opening of the MO Museum and their 1st exhibition (6 months)
  • Become world-famous (fingers crossed)
