EKA Design Hackthon takes place in Estonian Academy of Arts 1.11 – 3.11 and is dedicated to students of The Faculty of Design but opened to everyone who is interested.
A hackathon is a 48 hours long intensive event where students from different faculties work together in order to find design solutions for real life problems.
Although this is a general design hackathon we encourage the participants to think about futuristic solutions and use their imagination to come up with solutions that would feel innovative also in 2035.
Your idea could be a new alternative in the world of materials and textile, an advanced view of the ways things are engineered, a program or part of code that makes designing more efficient or anything else you can possibly come up with.
The event is free of charge, food is provided and experienced mentors are available throughout the event.
When registering explain your idea, write down the possible materials you may want to use and bear in mind that all the workshops are opened for the whole weekend. Don’t hesitate if you don’t have an idea yet, your skills are as valuable!
Make sure to come to the pre-event on 24.10 to get inspired & find answers to any questions you may have.
