The 4th Accessathon

Take part in a potentially life changing experience!
There are many challenges around accessibility we can undertake during the hackathon. Learn more about different impairments and find out how technology and creativity can help the people affected.

The 4th Accessathon will take place from 10th to 12th of May in Kamp-Lintfort. We have the amazing FabLab and other cool equipment at our disposal, and we are ready to welcome many experts on technology, accessibility, and many other things again!

You don’t have to feel like you are already an expert to join, though! In the creative process you will discover what topic you are especially interested in and might find something in your own experience that is unexpectedly helpful.

In the past hackathons we found out that everyone has a valuable set of skills and experiences that can provide creative ideas or critical knowledge to develop a great project idea. We already gathered lots of ideas to take, in case you need more input to start.

As always, we kindly ask you to read our Code Of Conduct to ensure that all participants are feeling safe and comfortable. By participating the Event, you agree to follow that code.
