Time Machine at Culture Hackathon 2020

Due to COVID19 this event might take place online. We will keep you informed on any updates.

The Future is GLAMorous?!

Date: 27-30 April 2020
Venue: St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences
Language: German and English
Registration is free of charge.

The word “hackathon” is composed of “hack” and “marathon” and thus describes the intensity and duration with which open data is used as the basis for projects. For 2.5 days, the hackathon participants are invited to experiment with data from cultural heritage: to develop projects, to draft concepts and to develop prototypes.

The approximately 45 participants of this event are supported by technical and scientific mentors in order to develop and implement strategies based on data from the field of art and culture which will influence the future of the art and cultural landscape.

Keynote by German Time Machine Ambassador

Our German Time Machine Ambassador Peter Bell (Professor Digital Humanities at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg) will have the pleasure to present Time Machine with a keynote on 29 April.

“The European Time Machine and Time Traveling Objects of Cultural Heritage” will explore how Time Machine has managed to build a large interdisciplinary network that operates internationally as well as locally (Local Time Machines). Besides universities, many GLAM institutions and companies are involved in this network. One focus is on 3D reconstructions of cities that are enriched with source material. Bell’s presentation will also focus on mobile objects, works of art and artifacts of all kinds, which can be given history and attention through digitisation.
