Event preparation

A space for students to gain experience in event planification and execution

Civics-focused seminars

No limits in creativity and innovation

As part of this 24-hour event, students gather in teams to build a software or hardware project, commonly referred to as a hack.

This series organised by Hack Concordia brings student teams together to build a creative and innovative software or hardware project, all guided by challenges and themes.


A safe, welcoming and fun space

This period of discussion or practical work on a particular subject fosters collaboration, in the form of a workshop. We've seen amazing things happen when people from different backgrounds take a collective and human-centred approach to address civic issues.
