This event will be a double-debut for Garage48 : it's the first time we'll hack the field of arts and heritage culture and come to Armenia!
Therefore, we are super thrilled and excited to invite all the future founders and hackers to join us on 15.12-17.12 for Garage48 Arts&Culture 2017 hackathon in Yerevan!
Armenian culture scene is known worldwide for its prominent carpet-weavers, its oldest, richest and most varied dance tradition in the Near East, its music and of course local cuisine and wine.
At the same time Armenian tech industry is growing at an annual rate of 20 percent and the country has been called the new Silicon Valley of the former Soviet Union.
