We’re delighted to share that we’re partnering with BuzzFeed and Stitcher to host Come and Play, a two-day audio storytelling hackathon where artists, storytellers, producers, developers, designers, and others will come together to find new and fun ways to tell stories with audio.
Participants will quickly prototype new tools for interacting with sound. They’ll also be treated to lightning talks from amazing speakers, including Lo Bénichou (Wired), Jenny Radelet (Stitcher), Avery Trufelman (99% Invisible), Kawandeep Virdee (Medium), BuzzFeed Audio’s Ahmed Ali Akbar (See Something Say Something) and Tracy Clayton (Another Round), and Audiosear.ch’s very own Bailey Smith.
When: May 13 and 14th
Where: BuzzFeed San Francisco (989 Market Street, one block from the Powell Street station)
If you love audio and want to play around with new ways of using technology to tell and share stories, sign up to participate!
Please note that signing up for the Hackathon does not ensure enrollment. Unfortunately, we have limited space and will be selecting candidates based on need for various skill sets. You will be notified if your application has been approved by April 14. Please let us know if you have specific travel requirements that may necessitate an earlier response date.
We’re excited to start playing. Sign up here.
Come and Play is sponsored by BuzzFeed and Stitcher, in cahoots with PRX.
