Shifting challenges

Have you got an idea on how technology and social media platforms can be incorporated to support arts, culture and heritage in Cyprus? If yes then the Culture Shift Hackathon programme on March 18-20 is looking for you.

The British Council and the British High Commission in collaboration with Snook, a Glasgow-based digital innovation agency, and in partnership with Google, are hosting the three-day programme that will be held at the Capital Impact in Nicosia.

This programme brings together creative people and digital practitioners to come up with new ideas and solutions, through the use of technology, to some of the challenges faced within the cultural and creative sector.

The organisers are currently looking for individuals with relevant ideas to submit them to http://bit.ly/1PFKgcN.

The three-day event is free and aims at collaborative people from the whole island who have skills in digital development, designers, entrepreneurs, innovators and individuals from the arts and cultural sector to work together over the weekend.

The teams will be supported by experts and mentors from both communities in Cyprus.
If you are interested in participating in the workshop and tackling a challenge sign-up for the event until March 13 at: www.cultureshiftcyprus.eventbrite.co.uk
