Australia’s Hackfest for Homelessness
About The Event
An initiative to end the worsening homeless epidemic in cities across Australia.
There is so much good work being done by so many governments, businesses, nonprofits, volunteers and community stakeholders, but we seem to be losing.
We believe the most effective way to tackle this epidemic is through collaboration and disruption. With you, we want to Disrupt Homelessness by generating innovative solutions, which are crowdsourced from the brilliant minds and hearts of our Australian communities!
October 18th to 20th
There will be a series of ‘Hackfests’ happening in 11 cities around Australia (Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Geelong, Gold Coast, Launceston, Melbourne, Newcastle, Perth, Sydney, Wollongong) and many more in the USA and other countries.
A Hackfest is a fun and inspiring event.
There’s no experience needed to join us and discover the power of creativity, personal development, innovation and collaboration to cause good things. We will use Design Thinking Innovation processes to generate ideas and solutions locally that will then be shared globally to end homelessness.There’s no experience needed.
