On May 21, in partnership with the Philadelphia Mural Arts and EPAM, Hopeworks hosted our annual Hackathon, which focused on the digital divide.
During the event, volunteers worked on storyboards and captured content to produce an augmented and virtual reality experience.
This includes an online repository for individuals in Camden and Philadelphia to share their experiences of the digital divide and how to solve it.
Not only will these stories exist online, but they will also form a key component of an upcoming pair of murals that will be developed in Philadelphia and Camden.
Visitors to the mural will be able to use their smart devices to see and experience these online stories as part of their experience. The Hackathon event was also covered by KYW News Radio reporter Racquel Williams!
