Events throughout the week. Dates and times for workshops, trainings, and special events to be announced.
The Hip Hop Hackathon launches a season of events between Black History Month and Juneteenth 2022 that bring together innovators and creatives to develop technology solutions to real-world problems. A Film Shorts and AR/VR Festival festival will be held May 16 -10 2022. Participants will create and submit shorts that explore the intersection of hip-hop, stem, virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality.
Hip Hop Hackathon is a community of creators, makers, and changemakers who have the power to craft the future of technology and culture by leveraging their unique talents to build solutions that address real-world problems. We know that our movement is not limited to the three pillars of rap, dance, and technology. We are artists and creators from all walks of life who have the potential to combine their expertise across a variety of disciplines to empower the culture.
The free events will celebrate the rich contributions of people of color, Blacks, and specifically, Black Women in STEM, to the computer industry, and encourage the next generation to explore STEM careers.
