Hack for Culture

Hack for Culture brought arts & cultural organisations (including the Bluecoat, Everyman Playhouse, FACT, Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool Philharmonic, Tate Liverpool and Unity Theatre) together with Merseyside's Digital and Creative industries to explore and experiment with a wide variety of hidden cultural data sets.  

Teams made up of designers and developers and staff from arts organisations designed and prototyped innovative products and services that utilised a variety of data sets that addressed cultural challenges and proposed new ways to work together in the future. Teams pitched their projects on the Sunday to a specialist panel with a range of prizes provided by the arts organisations above.

The event featured Bill Thompson (technology writer) as Speaker and Chair of the Judges.
