Kulturhackathon 2O18 @ St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences
Sep 20 @ 16:00 – Sep 22 @ 17:00

Open-Up and Create!

Der zweite Kulturhackathon für Österreich folgt dem Prinzip „Öffnet eure Daten und seid kreativ damit!“ Wir widmen uns vom 20. bis zum 22. September 2018 einem spannenden, sensiblen, interessanten und explosiven kulturellen Erbe.

Wir bekommen Zugang zu Material, welches oft verborgen liegt, jedoch in die Öffentlichkeit dringen möchte, um wahrgenommen und gesehen zu werden! Dem entspricht auch das heurige Motto „Bunkers, Bombs and Big Data“. Wir werden sehen, wie explosiv und wertvoll Daten sein können, wenn wir sie aktivieren!

Der Kulturhackathon möchte kulturelles Erbe zugänglich machen. Es soll den Menschen nahe gebracht werden und ihre Lebensqualität erhöhen. Gesucht werden Start-ups, die Innovatives erzeugen, um der Bevölkerung den Wert kulturellen Erbes und seine Verwertung näher zu bringen. Institutionen vernetzen sich und interdisziplinäre Kooperationen entstehen.
