Sex Tech Hackathon
|Datum:||1 mei 2021|
|Dit is een online event|
The Sex Tech industry is projected to be worth 52.7 billion dollars by 2026. As this market potential becomes impossible to ignore, people are ditching the taboo to accept both the importance of sexual health and its potential to reform the way we understand our health overall.
Despite this good news, it's still important to acknowledge the risks faced by any rising Tech Trends: Issues of security, privacy, and a one-size-fits-all design approach. These technological blind spots have the potential to lead us away from fairer technological futures, reinforcing harmful stereotypes and ignoring the wide spectrum of bodies, imaginations and human identities that we all have or are capable of having.
This Hackathon invites participants to actively and collaboratively question what the future holds for humans and our relationship with technology and sexuality. We want to hold space for important conversations and welcome creative ideas, dreaming and collaboration. Over the course of the weekend you will be introduced to the diverse and evolving field of Sex Tech, before working on your own project (in a team or solo - as you wish) from idea to prototype. There are of course prizes to be won!
A ticket to the Hackathon also gives you access to two pre-events: An exclusive networking event and the Sex Tech Talk Show. You will also be entered into a raffle where you can potentially win a range of generously donated prizes!
WHEN: 1-2 May 10am - 6pm CEST (TBC)
PRICE: Regular: €40,- / Student discount: €20,-

Online Festival Rainbows End
From April 22nd until 2nd of May Creative Coding Utrecht (CCU) opens up the online festival Rainbows End. This multi-sensory art manifestation is exploring the boundaries of reality, intimacy and play, with a diverse range of activities. Thanks to talk shows, screenings, performances, workshops, and an online art exhibition, you will be immersed in new realities.
During this 11-day programme, we will be hacking sex toys, discussing the importance of safe digital spaces, and the impact of complex politics and histories of technology, as well as many other topics. It promises to cultivate mind-expanding conversations with new people. Let’s get intimate!
Rainbows End is made possible by Gemeente Utrecht, Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, Mondriaan Fonds, VSBFonds, Stichting Elise Mathilde Fonds, Stichting Fentener van Vlissingen Fonds, and Pictoright Fonds.
