For Early Career Researchers across all disciplines, Creative SMEs and Artists
Wednesday 2nd May 2018 10.30am – 4pm (10am registration)
Hackademia 5x5x5 Culture Hack is being designed to create a playful space for TCCE Early Career Researchers as well as Artists and Creative SMEs to:
The day will be a mix of talks, preparatory workshops and pitches. Please come prepared to give a short pitch (3 minutes maximum) on your idea. We will be asking attendees to draft up a short synopsis ‘no more than 50 words on a postcard’ upon arrival. A selection group on the day will then solicit pitches from 5 researchers, 5 artists and 5 arts or creative organisations. Whilst we are open to all ideas, we have identified 3 themes here below that have particularly high currency amongst funding and policy bodies.
We encourage wide ranging and creative interpretation of these themes.
Throughout the day we will be joined by speakers including Professor Robert Hampson (Royal Holloway, University of London) who will talk about Research and the Wider Cultural Ecology, Liz Hill (Arts Professional), Mark Prest (Founding Director – Portraits of Recovery (PORe), who will talk about his collaborative project Reveal: Coming Out Visually, Pam Johnson (Senior Partnerships Officer Arts Council England) and Dr Joanna Dunster (Portfolio Manager: Research Careers and Training, Arts and Humanities Research Council). Representatives from TCCE partner universities will also be joining us including: Dr Mark Gray(Director of Knowledge Transfer, Middlesex University), Dr Natalie Crozier (Head of Team, Academic Enterprise, Research and Enterprise City University), Ian Gibbs (Lead on Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, City University). They will in particular be scouting for potential collaborations to support with mentoring, support in kind or possibly even seed funding.
Notes for would-be attendees. Please note:
Hackademia is a series developed by TCCE that sets out to bring together our early career researchers with the arts, cultural and creative sectors and to encourage knowledge-building and sharing about the value of collaboration, public engagement and the wider potential role of the university in contemporary society, culture and economy.

A full agenda will be circulated to attendees in the week before the event.
An all female Masters team from @UniKent tackled the issue of #plasticpollution at @Show__Code Athena Hack. The team developed an app ‘Plastix’ based on the augmented reality, machine learning and image recognition features. cs.kent.ac.uk/news.html?view… #womenintech pic.twitter.com/IkFO1VKYoU
