Event description

Description

ARE YOU A HACKER, HIPSTER, HUSTLER OR HUMANITARIAN?

WANT TO CO-CREATE TECH SOLUTIONS FOR REFUGEES LIVING IN SA?

Following the success of the Techfugees Hackathons in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, it's finally time for Adelaide to take part in this global initiative!

The Techfugees Adelaide Hackathon will bring together developers, designers, entrepreneurs, marketers, business minds and community members to develop creative tech solutions that focus on improving the lives of refugee families in Australia.

Former refugees who have already settled in Australia will be participating in this event to help teams deeply understand the problems and challenges faced by new settlers. The format of the Hackathon will draw strongly on co-design principals and practices.

Leaders from Adelaide's burgeoning Tech community will mentor teams through the weekend.

We launch and form teams on Friday evening and work together on solutions throughout the weekend until pitch time on Sunday afternoon.

We will continue to update this event page as more details are confirmed including venue, sponsorship and prize information.

Please also keep up to date through our social media pages and devpost profile.
