Artistic hackathon Day is 86,400 seconds


The artistic hackathon Day is 86,400 Seconds Long was held in parallel to the first day of the conference Culturo-Futuro! Beyond the Limits of Imagination (from 11 PM on 24 November to 11 PM on 25 November). The motto of the meeting referred to the slogan displayed by Czech industrialist Tomáš Baťa in 1905 on the wall of his Zlin-based shoemaking factory, which was still small at the time. The slogan reflected his belief that even seemingly short periods of time are important for building the future.

The teams involved in the project were tasked with creating a story about one day of our future history by means of an artistic technique selected by them. The narrative emerged in real time – the artists had exactly 24 hours to present their finished concepts. Among those invited to the session, which followed the convention of a hackathon, were representatives of different artistic milieus of Wrocław: visual artists as well as those connected with theatre, film, music, literature and architecture. They formed interdisciplinary, meta-cultural teams, whose task was to cooperate on outlining the future history of Wrocław, Poland, Europe and the world.
