Hacking Hackathons with a feminist perspective

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Traditional hackathons have many risks: they encourage competition and not collaboration, they are oriented to expert participants in technology, they are a hotbed of ideas that are not followed up and do not arouse any critical analysis towards technology. And in addition, a very small number of women and a diverse population always participate as an indigenous, rural population, with a disability, Afro-descendant, etc. However, the challenge of developing a proposal in an intensive period is something that appeals mainly to young people. Since 2014, Sulá Batsú has developed hackathons from a feminist approach aimed at women from all over the Central American territory and from all rural, border, indigenous, afro, and other contexts. This seeks to break with all the logic behind the hackathons, but this device is used as an instance of critical analysis of technology and creation of technological proposals as a way to give voice to all women through technology. We propose it as a workshop because we want participants to design their own female hackathons in our workshop with our methodological approach.
