Digital Innovation Season Community 

Starts 07.01.21
Winners announced 30.01.21

Calling current Central Saint Martins BA and MA students and 2020 Graduates!  How do you imagine the encounter human-machine in 2050? Collaboration, co-evolution, hostility? What kind of experience might humans have with their everyday use of technology? How will our body, society and planet be transformed? Are we going to live in a machine-ruled world?

The Hybrid Futures Hackathon challenges you to work collaboratively in cross-course teams to create a work in any media that creatively and critically responds to the themes of “HYBRID FUTURES” and “DIGITAL INNOVATION"

Hackathon brief available here

The groups will present at the Hybrid Futures Symposium.
