Hacktivist Village

Summer 2017 Tour

Last year was an incredible unknown journey that started with a vision of creating a new dimension to a multi-sensory, immersive art, music and education festival. Our goal was to facilitate creative collaboration, undiluted knowledge sharing and expanded perceptions. It was nothing short of mind-blowing to participate in seeing that vision truly come to life.

This year, we've got the foundation of what we learned, accomplished and experienced last year at Symbiosis Gathering to grow from. Now, we're building the next evolution of our interactive experiment. 

A hacker is someone who enjoys playful cleverness — not necessarily with computers.
