Hackers & Designers is an initiative that brings two professions closer to each other in order to develop a common vocabulary and collective design concepts. Since the first H&D meet-ups in 2013, H&D has developed an extensive network of designers, artists, software developers, researchers, scientists, and theoreticians. Traditionally Hackers & Designers activities consist of hands-on short workshops and deal with topics such as web technologies, Peer 2 Peer networks, crypto currencies, typography, conditional design, printmaking, and simple hardware constructions.
The 10 full-day immersive program of workshops, lectures, discussions and experimentation, along with a cozy atmosphere provides an environment to investigate and learn through creating. Hackers & Designers is developing the summer program in collaboration with internationally renowned initiatives and individuals working in design, art, and technology.
Hackers & Designers is generously funded by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie since 2015.
