I don't know if this would be a Hackathon in the strictest sense, but I am attending an event tomorrow that certainly has its roots there. Guru Digital Arts College, a premier Albertan incubator for creative talent, is heading up a multi-faceted creative event dubbed The Enchanted Fall.
This event brings together Gurus in the fields of art, music, digital media, game design, makers, hackers, coders, dancers, comics and a whole bunch of other things (scroll down the list)!
Full disclosure: I worked at Guru for a short time as an instructor and instructional designer and I have rarely seen a group of producers so committed to their craft and to teaching it! I am looking forward to being a part of it and I promise to take lots of pics and share them to #gamemooc !
Cheers. If you happen to be in Edmonton tomorrow, the event is free and really shouldn't be missed!
