Hacktivism: the Unlocking Ideas Hackathon
Event held at Islington Mill, Saturday 7 June – Sunday 8 June, 1.00pm – 1.00pm
Unlocking Ideas Worth Fighting For, a collaborative project between the People’s History Museum and the Working Class Movement Library, is excited to announce details of its 24 hour hackathon weekend.
From 1.00pm on Saturday 7 June to 1.00pm on Sunday 8 June, Unlocking Ideas Worth Fighting For is inviting programmers, campaigners, designers and anyone in between to team up in Salford’s Islington Mill and create the next generation of protest tools.
During the last two centuries the people demanded change by taking to the street. From the Chartists to the suffragettes to the peace movement, those demanding change expressed their views publicly by bearing the tools of protest; placards, banners and posters.
Now, activism is being redefined by the digital age. MyDavidCameron.com started this process; we’re looking at where it goes from here: could campaign music make the world a better place? Could short notice protests be bigger and better? Could movements realise what material has the biggest impact?
Get inspired by these questions and more and use the digitised collections of the People’s History Museum and Working Class Movement Library to hack new ways of speaking truth to power.
WiFi will be supplied and enabled by the fantastic Get Me Connected making sure you can get connected on the device (or devices) of your choice at any time. Food will be provided and our event hosts, Islington Mill, will kindly be putting on an honesty bar for the event. Booking is via eventbrite and please check the People’s History Museum and Working Class Movement Library events pages for more information. Hacktivism is a free event, suitable for adults.
