HDSA2020 will take place remotely from July 20-25, 2020


In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic Hackers & Designers acknowledges the importance of continuity and solidary action, thus proposes an alternative format for the 6th edition of the H&D Summer Academy. Without rendering the current events as an opportunity we restructured our annual H&D Summer Academy into a distributed workshop programme—taking place in one dedicated week in July! We have received a lot of exciting workshop proposals and are excited about potential of this year's summer academy.

Are you interested in exploring the possibilties and boundaries of network infrastructures, inter-social and technical communication protocols, material implications of connectivity? You want to lift the fog off cloud concepts? Are you thinking through making? Are you looking for new challenges and cross-disciplinary collaboration? Join the H&D Summer Academy 2020!
