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.Agenda: FRIDAY 18:00 Registration 18:30 Welcome and Introduction 19:00 Team Formation 19:30-22:00 Drinks and Nibbles SATURDAY 8:30-9:30 Arrival and Breakfast 9:30 Group Work Starts 13:30 Lunch 19:30 Submission of Results 20:00 Group Presentations 21:00-23:00 Award Ceremony (Including Dinner and Drinks) Location: Spielfeld Digital Hub, Skalitzer Str. 85/86, 10997 Berlin, Entrance D Cost: The participation is free, food & drinks are provided throughout the day, but unfortunately we can’t cover any travel or accommodation costs.
