Held over two weekends at PICA, artists selected from our XR Bootcamp & Hackathon callout will gain hands-on experience and assistance to develop a new XR (extended reality) project. Working in small teams with a technical artist/animator and 3D developer, the Hackathon will provide artists with practical experience in the XR development process including technical setup, software/hardware requirements, rapid prototyping and workflow to create a functional prototype.
The projects developed throughout the Hackathon will be displayed in PICA’s Reading Room at our XR Hackathon Showcase as part of XR:WA Festival.
Hackathon participants will be paid a daily stipend of $350 (a total of $1,750, including 1 day of support and assistance outside Hackathon dates) and provided with expert production and technical support.
The XR Hackathon runs 27 & 28 August and 3 & 4 September.
Applications for PICA’s Hackathon program are now closed.
