REMIX: Hack Weekend

Date: Saturday 30 April – Sunday 1 May
Location: PwC’s Innovation Hub in Perth CBD (Level 15, 125 St Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000)

The next stage is the REMIX hack weekend – here the teams will be given one of ten of the MINI MIXERS’s creative visual submissions to digitally remix and bring them to life. The MINI MIXERS will attend the first day of the hack weekend accompanied by a Curtin University student.

The remixed objects can be realised through a range of digital channels that relocate, re-situate or re-imagine the object. The teams will then be given one week to polish their final output before it is presented the following weekend at the POSTMIX event.
