Summer Academy 2019: Coded Bodies
- NDSM-plein 127
Are you interested in exploring the boundaries of existing technology, programming platforms, online/offline networks, and user experiences? Are you thinking through making? Are you looking for new challenges and cross-disciplinary collaboration? Join the H&D Summer Academy 2019!
In the summer of 2019 Hackers & Designers brings together an international group of ambitious makers (hackers/designers/artists) to collectively engage with technology. During the 10 day program, consisting of workshops, lectures, and publishing activities, tutors and mentors become participants, participants will become workshop leaders – everyone will be taken on the collective venture of shared responsibility, bringing in one’s own expertise, urgencies and experience. The program addresses makers who are not afraid to open, break and rethink software and hardware, learning by doing, and recognize the importance of researching the various consequences that arise in our contemporary information society.
The summer academy concludes with a public program, in which participants will be able to present the results created during the Summer Academy.
The 5th edition of the H&D Summer Academy focuses on topics relating to the (human, post-human, trans-human, non-human) body and its interdependence with technology. By creating shared moments of learning and unlearning, H&D invites participating makers to get their hands dirty, all the while discussing topics related to ubiquitous computing, disappearance of interfaces, transhumanism, digitized bodies, biometric data, agency of user, representation and citizenship…

BYOW (Bring Your Own Workshop)
The H&D Summer Academy aims to create space for experimentation, self-organisation, self-determined learning, and peer2peer exchange, while promoting ‘hands-on learning’ to enable critical design and developer’s practices. We therefore open the possibility for participants to contribute to the Summer Academy with a workshop.
- Participation in the H&D Summer Academy is free for workshop contributors.
- Limited space for workshop contributions. We therefore will make a selection.
- All workshop contributors should commit to the full program of the H&D Summer Academy.
Deadline for submitting a workshop proposal. We might get in touch with you in the week following if we have questions, or to propose collaborations. It would be great if you would be available on Skype during that week.
