For over three years Art-A-HackTM has supported teams from a variety of disciplines including art, technology, hardware and software development, design, immersive environments, music, theater, animation, social justice and interactivity. Art-A-HackTM matches participants selected from an open call according to their skill level, interests and concept. Teams are provided with equipment, facilitation and collaborative workspaces. Each iteration of the program then culminates in showcases and promotion opportunities for the teams.

This unique Art-A-Hack™, produced in collaboration with CYLAND MediaArtLab, entails teams working together for two consecutive weekends before presenting their final projects in a public opening at the Berthold Centre in St. Petersburg on February 7th, 2018.
