About Hackathon

It’s up to us to imagine how to change the world we live in. Without our ideas and our thought-leadership, we might as well throw in the towel.

Join us as we scour the landscape of creativity and think of ways to make saving our future a vision we can own. This year’s Hackathon with partners, Warrior Records, will challenge young artists, musicians, programmers and tech-savvy youth to think of how to create a way to inspire the next generation to think about how to write the future of the world.

Anchored in the realm of music, we are looking for fresh expressions of ways to think about new technologies, environmental awareness and climate change, learnings from history and politics in our modern society, and how to fully utilise our bodies and minds to enact change and create a sustainable world with the power of creative and critical thinking!

With the voice of music, art and innovative-tech we want to rally young minds to think as a community on how to secure our tomorrows for eons to come!
