SPARTHackathon is a nomadic hackathon format focusing on the relation between space and art. Each edition’s location and approach are unique.
What is the relation between space and arts? Why is it so fascinating? How to use and combine technologies? There are many, many things to discover.
Pitch your ideas. Form groups of 3 to 5 people. Exchange, work together. Add your unique individual talents. Expand your limits and those of your collaborators.
Show your work to the public. Outline your process in a short presentation and demonstrate your hacks in an exhibition. Make your ideas become real.
WHAT IS IT AIMING FOR?
The goal is to engage and connect local art and science communities, institutes, companies, and individuals as well as to connect the open source and DIY culture with the intellectual property side and academia. We are aiming for participants such as local artists, artist groups, students, space engineers, astrophysicists, creative technologists, and enthusiasts, to collaboratively build a physical outcome using materials that we provide and they bring along.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
SPARTH is the perfect scenario to create and explore unusual innovative possibilities. The Hackathon will mix disciplines, strategies, and methodologies from the field of arts, science, and engineering, to enrich the knowledge of the participants. The outcomes of such hybridization are not only valuable in themselves but ideally also represent this juncture between the participants and disciplines. We propose future-proof access to artistic practice and space research.
