Lecture in Progress are helping run a full day Google Hackathon—and are inviting students, graduates and creatives with less than 3 years’ experience to get involved!
This is your chance to meet, learn from and be coached by members of the team at Google Creative Lab, as well as collaborate with an inspiring group of individuals within the Google space to collectively work towards creating your own experiment.
Experiments with Google is a platform containing projects that push the boundaries of art, technology, design and culture. Each experiment is user-submitted, using technology in a new and interesting way, in response to themes set by the Experiments team. Experiments can range from small hacks to polished projects, and everything in between.
Participants will set out to solve one of the biggest challenges of our generation, using technology as the key ingredient. The theme will be revealed on the day, and will be in line with Experiments with Google’s upcoming Collection.
This hackathon is an opportunity to work together and come up with concepts and solutions that could go on to live on the platform. You’ll be researching, thinking and prototyping ideas in small groups, guided and mentored by members of the Google Creative Lab team.
There are 60 places available and we’re looking for a diverse group of collaborative thinkers and makers that can both conceive new ideas and build tools, whether as individuals, or as part of small teams. We know that the best projects come out of diverse thinking and collaboration, so this hackathon is open to people from a wide range of creative disciplines.
You could be a designer, coder, writer, interaction designer, UX designer, animator, art director, filmmaker, creative technologist or anything in between.
Wednesday 27 November, 9am-6pm. Google London, 1-13 St Giles High Street, London, WC2h 8AG.
