re:Naissance Opera’s IndieFest is a musical gathering that brings together artists and audiences from all walks of life to expand artistic practices, experience new works of art, and express creative voices. And this year’s IndieFest brings Vancouver’s first Opera Hackathon.

Through the fast paced sprint of a hackathon, re:Naissance Opera is gathering creatives and experts from the Opera, Theatre, Digital Media, and Technology sector to build capacity and network through collaborative creation. This four day event will see teams of 4-5 participants work together to conceptualize and create a product that responds to an industry challenge that interests them. Through this period, they will receive mentorship from experts from both the opera and tech sector.

Each participant will receive a $1000 honorarium for their time. At the end of the 4 day sprint, a final presentation of the product in process will be presented to a panel and fellow participants for feedback.
