Hack-a-demia 2.0 is an interactive conference for early career researchers, artists, creative SMEs and policy makers which will explore the benefits, challenges, and possibilities that meaningful collaboration between the arts, creative industries and the academy can bring to all involved.
Through an imaginative programme of workshops, talks and facilitated networking, Hack-a-demia 2.0 will draw on and showcase the findings of The Exchange project to explore how creative practitioners and academic researchers can learn from each other’s approaches. We’ll prove how getting out of your professional comfort zone can enhance the impact of your work, build genuine cross-sector and interdisciplinary collaborations, and develop your practice for the future in a variety of ways.
Existing creative / research partnerships will be able to book 1:1 surgery sessions with TCCE staff. We will offer advice on how to take your collaboration to the next level, and we promise that all attendees will leave Hack-a-demia 2.0 with an enhanced network (and maybe even new friends) as a result of our “Cannon Chequers” networking!
Registration will start from 1.30pm for a prompt 2pm start.
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
