ABOUT THE SPACE

The Space is a free website for artists and audiences to create and explore brilliant new art, commissioned by us and shared around the Whole Wide World.

We commission new talent and great artists from all art forms, creative industries, technical and digital backgrounds, through regular Open Calls and partnerships.

With around 50 new commissions a year, The Space is one of the most exciting places on the internet to find new art, free for audiences and artists to explore, express and enjoy.

The Space never closes its doors to anybody. It is a constant growing art collection that changes with every visit. Every Friday lunchtime is the launch of a new collaboration.

Set up by the BBC and the Arts Council of England, The Space is a free public space, a not-for-profit public service for artists and audiences around the world.

ABOUT THE HACKATHON

Over the 24 hours between the 13th and 14th June, 3beards, in conjunction with The Space will be hosting a digital art hackathon in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. The event will start at 6pm on the 13th and run to around 10pm on the 14th June.

THE BRIEF

Take any form of data and transform it into a creative digital artwork.

Further information on the judging criteria will be released on registration for this event.

THE PRIZE

A number of winners will be selected from the participating teams on the Saturday night. Prizes will include consideration for a full commission from The Space to further develop the project.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Unfortunately, all the places on the hackathon have now been allocated. Tate Modern will be open over the weekend, but the Hackathon will not be accessible by the public.
