The Baltics’ largest creative industries hackathon Loomehäkk returns on September 14-16 with a bang and moves to a new location in Mektory. For the 6th edition of Loomehäkk we will return to our roots and the topic for the event is Creative Tech – be it creative technologies or technology in creative industries.
Put together your dream team of creative types, coders, designers and hustlers for a 48-hour hackathon to hatch out a truly innovative prototype using technology creatively and creativity in tech. You will have the best mentors, largest prizes (1st prize takes 1500.- euros), most inspiring crowd, fastest WiFi, free food and the entire Mektory building at your disposal to seamlessly create your dream prototype. If needed, you can even stay overnight to spare time wasted on logistics.
For the first time, Loomehäkk will hack the issue of integration in society as one of its thematic tracks. We increasinly need more creative and IT talent to create seamless societies in the face of growing challenges of divided communities, clashes of culture, religion, ethnicity, etc. To boost the initiative, Estonian Integration Foundation is donating a 3000 euros cash award for the best integration solution created during Loomehäkk.
