Are you interested in exploring the boundaries of existing technology, programming platforms, online/offline networks, user experiences? Are you thinking through making? Are you looking for new challenges and cross-disciplinary collaboration? Join the H&D Summer Academy 2019! 

 Submit a workshop proposal for the 5th edition of the Hackers & Designers Summer Academy 'Coded Bodies'!  

In the summer of 2019 Hackers & Designers brings together an international group of ambitious hackers/designers/makers/artists to learn by creating. During the 10 day program, consisting of workshops, lectures, and publishing activities, tutors and mentors become participants, participants become workshop leaders – everyone will be taken on the collective venture of shared responsibility, bringing in one’s own expertise, urgencies and experience.

The summer academy concludes with a public program, in which participants will be able to present the results created during the Summer Academy.

Coded Bodies

The 5th edition of the H&D Summer Academy focuses on topics relating to the (human, post-human, trans-human, non-human) body and its interdependence with technology. By creating shared moments of learning and unlearning, H&D invites participating makers to discuss topics related to ubiquitous computing, disappearance of interfaces, transhumanism, digitized bodies, biometric data, agency of user, representation and citizenship…

BYOW (Bring Your Own Workshop)*

The H&D Summer Academy aims to create space for experimentation, self-organisation, self-determined learning, and peer2peer exchange, while promoting ‘hands-on learning’ to enable critical design and developer’s practices. We therefore open the possibility for participants to contribute to the Summer Academy with a workshop*.

Submit your workshop proposals here: 


The deadline for submission is May 15th 2019. We might get in touch with you in the week following if we have questions, or to propose collaborations. It would be great if you would be available on Skype during that week. You will hear back from us about the finalized program by May 27th. 

*Participation in the H&D Summer Academy is free for workshop contributors
