5926037286_6ddda6aab3_oWe finally see it - a year in the making but now Hack for Culture has a name it can't be sued over. It is set to set the world of arts data alight by bringing the glorious arts & cultural organisations of Liverpool together with Merseyside's Digital and Creative industries to explore and experiment with a wide variety of hidden cultural data sets.  

"A data set (or dataset) is a collection of data, usually presented in tabular form. Each column represents a particular variable. Each row corresponds to a given member of the data set in question. It lists values for each of the variables, such as height and weight of an object. Each value is known as a datum. The data set may comprise data for one or more members, corresponding to the number of rows." Wikipedia - so probably wrong. 

YOUR INVITED SO READ ON

Where you at clock by John McKerrell

Team of designers and developers and staff from arts organisations will design and prototype innovative products and services that utilise a variety of data sets that answer cultural challenges and propose new ways to work together in the future. Teams will pitch their projects on the Sunday to a specialist panel with a range of prizes provided by the arts organisations above.

The event will feature several speakers including Bill Thompson (BBC technology critic). 

If you've never participated in a Hack Day before have a look at films of similar events we've delivered: Fab Camp Liverpool and Hacks meet Hackers and have a look at the Participant Information to see the benefits of attending.

We'll be providing updates on who's participating, new data sets and challenges issued by both communities and so keep checking back over the coming weeks.

This a two-day event running over the weekend of March 3rd and 4th at LJMU's Art and Design Academy.  

Please register here to attend.
