The teams are augmented by dance and media students from OAMK, who work alongside the professional artists, gaining valuable experience.
The first three Hacks have been hosted in the EduLAB and Dance Department at OAMK, with support from JoJo – Oulu Dance Centre, Finnish Cultural Foundation, BusinessOulu, Probot, Haltian, Delicode, Museum and Science Centre Luuppi, Playsign, smARTplaces – European audience development network, Berlin-based Isadora, eTOPIA – Spanish Art And Science Centre and Kulttuurivoimala – Culture Power Station. Some of the visiting artists have been supported by STEP travel grants from the ECF.
If you are an artist interested in exploring the process of integrating dance and technology, look out for the call in April each year. If you are a technology business - particularly those based in Oulu - and interested in new opportunities for testing, developing and documenting your product then please get in touch with TaikaBox.
