Culture Shift: Technology Meets Art
Culture Shift hack event is being organised for a second year and is aiming to develop a range of ideas and digital prototypes that solve or build on challenges regarding the cultural sector in Greece.
The culture hackathon is being organised by the British Council, along with Google, in partnership with the Future Library and Bios, and in collaboration with Snook. It's being hosted at Romantso (3-5 Anagaxora street, 105 52, Omonoia Athens) between the 1st – 3rd April 2016.
I will be joining Cultural Shift as one of the mentors that will be advising the teams on Saturday, April 2nd, afternoon. Mentors will be asked to ensure that each group can articulate by the Sunday pitches their idea, the challenges they are solving, their team, the technical specs and the business overivew of their idea.
The rest of the mentors are Xenia Kalpaktsoglou (co-director Athens Bienalle), Despina Gerasimidou (Project Manager Future Library), Dimitris Kalavros (Co-Founder, Partner at Found.ation, Young Entrepreneur), Dimitris Terzopoulos (Google), Kika Kiriakakou (communication manager, Atopos), Dionisis Andrianopoulos (designer, Affect), Alexandros Didaskalou (designer).
