The concept of computer “hacking” was defined by the MIT community in the 1950s and ’60s. Those early hackers were more about sharing and providing free access to computers. That’s the concept behind the Art & Music Hackathon that takes place on Friday and Saturday at Mahall’s. The club is collaborating with Maker’s Alliance, Thinkbox and Ingenuity Cleveland on Saturday when the Cleveland Arduino event is at Case Western’s Thinkbox. Prize categories include: Best Music Hack; Best Art Hack; Best Software/Hardware Hack; Crowd Favorite. Guest speakers include: Peter Ferry, a percussionist/performer with Alarm Will Sound; a rep from Earthquaker Devices; and Cleveland Museum of Art Chief Information Officer Jane Alexander. The event is free and open to all ages.

Here’s the schedule of events:

6 p.m.: Registration/participants sign up/sign in
7 p.m.: Icebreaker
7:15 p.m.: Guest speakers
9 p.m.: Idea session — local people talk about their hack ideas, projects, teams are formed
10 p.m. (or whenever idea session is done): Hacking begins

10 a.m.-3 p.m.: ThinkBox at Case Western where there is a Cleveland Arduino day event happening at the same time as the Mahall’s Hackathon

6 p.m.-7 p.m.: Hack presentations — finished projects are presented in 2 to 5 minutes followed by a Q&A from judges panel

9-9:30 p.m.: After party begins with live music by Times10
