Hacktivism: The Unlocking Ideas Hackathon, 7-8 June 2014

 
7 - 8 June 2014, Hacktivism, The Unlocking Ideas Hackathon © Working Class Movement Library

What is the future of protest; could campaign music make the world a better place? Could short notice protests be bigger and better? Could movements realise what material has the biggest impact?

During the last two centuries the people demanded change by taking to the street. From the Chartists to the suffragettes to the peace movement, those demanding change expressed their views publicly by bearing the tools of protest; placards, banners and posters. Now activism is being redefined by the digital age.

Hacktivism is asking attendees to create the next generation of protest tools. Join this free 24 hour Hackathon and make use of the digitised collections of the People’s History Museum and Working Class Movement Library and hack new ways of speaking truth to power.

Please note this event is at Islington Mill in Salford.
