During this hackathon event, technology and creative communities will work together to build programs and applications inspired by art or to address specific challenges faced by museums. This will be our second annual museum hackathon.
This event will be at the Walters Art Museum from Jan. 24–Jan. 26. On Friday evening, from 6-9 p.m. staff and participants will present specific challenges or ideas to solve—such as ideas for technology to experience a collection, or ideas for digital archives. Over the course of the weekend, technologists, innovators, scholars and artists will coalesce into teams in the Walters’ Sculpture Court to design and develop their solution. Participants will be able to visit the museum’s galleries for inspiration throughout the weekend. On Sunday, Jan 26, leaders of the technology and innovation communities will judge which teams were the most successful.
