As partners of the project, Chromatic Pro will host the HackCité 375 contest for one evening. Inspired by a multidisciplinary artistic process intent on creating an interactive digital artpiece for Montreal’s 375th anniversary, this hackathon brings together 60 participants from art, design and technology to create a first draft of what will be a weeklong challenge, before finally facing the judges.
During this evening, nine candidates will deliver a short pitch of their project. The public and the jury composed of representatives from Printemps Numérique, Projet A144, MTL NewTech, Pixsenses, DIX au carré, La Boîte interactive and Chromatic, will act as coaches before the final pitch on MAY 31th.
Follow this fabulous contest in service of creativity and the Montreal community.
