Hacking Arts



Hacking Arts is a 3 day event where the arts and technology intersect.

Organized by CUNY Startups and students from various CUNY schools, “Hacking Arts” aims to bring together creatives together with technologists (coders, engineers etc. )  in a tech and art space to build out  solutions unique to the NYC community.

Over the course of three days, students  will come together to participate in workshops, performances and hacking with the goal of improving the greatest city in the world.

I can’t code. Should I still attend?
