The ART x TECH hackathon is here. You have 24 hours to disrupt the art industry.

This time around, we bring you real challenges from key innovators in the art and technology space. So you can solve them. Or be inspired to pitch your own art x tech idea.

Our challenge partners for this event include Artfinder, Gitoon, Sedition and Vastari.

Join fellow art professionals, entrepreneurs, artists and hackers to create a new art business in 24 hours. Come up with new ways to fund, make, share and enjoy art. Receive coaching from art entrepreneurs, pitch to experienced industry experts and develop solutions to the art world's most pressing problems.

Prizes include digital artworks from Sedition and a consultation from Magnific, a company founded by growth hacking expert Vincent Dignan.
