Event Details

On the evening of Friday 9th August we invite you to join us to celebrate the beginning of Hack the Barbican. This extraordinary experiment fusing arts, technology and entrepreneurship will take over the Barbican Centre's cavernous foyers from 5th to 31st August.

The opening event will include special performances, an introduction to the project and the chance to interact with installations around the building. A cash bar will be open throughout the evening. To register for a place just submit your details on this page.
Hack the Barbican will host dozens of discipline-bending installations, performances, workshops and discussions. The participants include painters, computer scientists, sculptors, hardware hackers, teachers, musicians and everything in between. 
Coding, visual work and fabrication will be hosted in hack-spaces created in the Barbican foyers. Site-specific projects will hijack areas of the Barbican’s labyrinthine brutalist interior and turn them into games, performances and installations. Even the Barbican’s publicity screens and audio announcement system may be prone to unusual behaviour.
Hack the Barbican is produced by The Trampery in association with the Barbican
Thanks to our wonderful sponsors Queen Mary, University of London and Nominet Trust
