ArtHack by Openhack empowering female creatives

27 Nov 2020

It’s time to bring diverse changemakers and empower female creatives to make artistic dreams – reality.


ArtHack (creative ideas marathon) will facilitate physical and online platforms for ANU student engagement from any discipline and any college. The aim is to encourage students to come together physically and online and solve the current challenges in the Arts & Creatives industry which includes empowering females, creatives and artists during the global pandemic. It is a great way for students to relax with creative discussions after the exam sessions. Each hackathon event proves to be a source of inspiration to the participants and all engaged parties. With this ArtHack the focus is to encourage female participation in Arts and Technology by creating a safe space to act and follow one’s passion and make artistic dreams – a reality. We encourage diversity – all ANU students are welcome to participate physically and others who are interested can join the hackathon online.
