Join us for our 2nd Annual Hackathon!

Are you a hacker who loves music and the performing arts? Are you a musician or performer who loves experimenting with technology? Do you enjoy competing for cash prizes?

PeabodyHacks: Access & Performance is happening January 31-February 1, 2020 at the Arthur Friedheim Library.

Students from campuses across the city of Baltimore with a passion for music, performing arts, and technology will join creative forces for a 24-hour sprint to create new instruments or teaching tools for novices and expert performers alike. All students enrolled in a degree program at a College or University with a campus in Baltimore City are eligible to participate.

Teams will create a project to be judged by a panel of experts – the winning team will be awarded a $2,000 cash prize!

Our theme this year is Access. Projects should solve a problem of access for performing artists, audience members or students of the performing arts.

We encourage participants to think critically about access in technology and the arts. Projects might engage access in the following ways:
-physical & geographical
-intellectual “exclusivity” in the arts
-institutions
-barriers related to privilege in artistic circles
-under-representation of diverse creators
-educational opportunities for students and patrons of the arts
-other topics that limit engagement with arts…
