Micro-Hackathon and Keynote

  We will work together to hack and create new  instruments for the collaborative economy in the developing world. The instruments will be build from trash and residuals from first world countries.

This micro-hackathon designed by UNAM designer and experience curator Liliana Savage, who will create a sensorial experience that will push all participants to be creators and to think how we can innovate from  the first world garbage that we dump into third world countries. While we hack away on our instruments, participants will listen and engage in discussions with our Keynote speaker Alexis Crawshaw,  a composer and  doctoral researcher in intersensorial composition using infrasounds.

Music and Dance Fest

We will do a music festival where we will use the instruments we build to manifest future of collaborative economy in developing world.  Participants are free to dance and use their body to express themselves as well.

Our hope is that the music, dance and micro hackathon will inspire love for the developing world, and inspire participants to produce useful technology that involves more people in the collaborative economy.

This Hack and Dance is organized by:
Saiph Savage, Joel Dietz, Alexis Crawshaw, Liliana Savage, Daniel Valdez Puertos.
