Come to create immersive art experiences


Aalto Studios and Helsinki XR Centre are arranging an XR focused hackathon sponsored by Varjo, MAGICS and National Museum of Finland.

Embrace Impact fosters the development of artistic XR experiences. Impact starts as a hackathon that lasts from Thursday 30.9. until Tuesday 4.10. It is a co-creation event to generate new concepts based on the creative challenge. The challenge frames the themes, the length and the format of the concept.

XR Hack-Art-On is a free event open for developers, creators, students, enthusiasts and researchers from all walks of life. Even though all the participants register individually, it’s recommended to network with other attendants already before the hack begins.

The winning team will be awarded with a grant of 10.000 euros at the delivery of the final XR work. Winner will also ge a free Varjo headset.

The Hack-Art-On can be attended both in Helsinki XR Centre (Arabia) and online. More information:
