Music Cities Hackathon


For the first time in Berlin, Sound Diplomacy hosts a Music Cities Hackathon in collaboration with the Technology Foundation Berlin and Spielfeld Digital Hub. The Music Cities Hackathon offers a space for experts, entrepreneurs & students from different disciplines to come up with innovative and sustainable solutions to tackle the challenges that cities worldwide are facing. The target audience will be experts/students with backgrounds in disciplines including music, programming, architecture, urban planning, creative industries, design and science. The best solutions will not only be presented at the Music Cities Convention, but as part of the prize the teams will also be offered professional support to further develop their ideas.
