We are the winner of the Race for Apps Gold Award in the ‘Finding your way’ category, it was announced at the Digital Shoreditch Festival today.
The Race for Apps project, a collaboration between Hackney Council, Digital Shoreditch and the Technology Strategy Board’s IC tomorrow team, celebrates ground-breaking apps which successfully transform visitors’ experience of the Hackney area in this Olympic year.
As winners of the Race for Apps competition, Hackney Hear will receive funding opportunities to advance the development of the app.
We also announced the first Hackney Hear ‘mob’ event on 1 July 2012 (2pm – 5pm) as part of the CINE East Festival. Entitled Hackney Hear Plus1, this event will be an opportunity for visitors to use the app en masse, approaching a stranger in silence with a personalised invitation and sharing the experience of creating stories and rediscovering Hackney using sound.
