In less than six months, we organised a second Fine Acts Labs edition, our innovative format that we call hack-art-athon. The event brought together 12 multidisciplinary teams of artists and technologists for an intense weekend of collaboration on issues such as LGBTQ+ rights, climate change and pollution and media freedom.

The format resulted in engaging art & tech project ideas that raise awareness or contribute to solving a concrete problem.

The project that won the jury’s support was Fakery (to be launched in May 2019), led by technologist Ivan Shulev and artist Iliyana Kancheva. Their project addresses the rising concern with fake news and disinformation.

See all project ideas here, which are open for use and adaptation!

Fine Acts Labs (now ACT Labs) are unique events that explore the intersection of human rights, art and technology, and develop a range of solutions - from immersive, participatory art pieces to apps with a strong art component. By communicating human rights issues in new, unexpected ways, we seek new avenues to inspire action and attract support.
