Hackers & Designers (NL)2>
Hackers & Designers is a non-profit workshop initiative with a focus on technology, design and art, and exchange between the disciplines. By creating shared moments of hands-on learning H&D stimulates transdisciplinary collaboration, technological literacy and critical citizenship.
H&D workshops are occasions to discuss and question proprietary software and closed systems. While collectively imagining alternative socio-technological futures, the work of H&D goes hand in hand with building actual tools, which we document and publish for others to use and appropriate. H&D's tool-building practice is informed by a legacy of practitioners in and around the field of design, art and technological production who are blurring the lines between using andmaking tools, for instance by taking on the task of building and maintaining tools themselves, as well as creating communities around these tool-building practices.
