As part of the Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs project, PCA is hosting the second local Creative Jam (Hackathon) to challenge young people from across Devon to shape the future and step from ideas to prototypes with the support of experts from the Creative and Tech sector.

Are you ambitious and want to make the world a better place through innovation, creative thinking, digital design, and collaboration while learning new skills?
*What’s up from the last Creative Jam in July?

*AYCH project. The overall AYCH project, that the Creative Jam is a part of, is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme, designed to promote transnational cooperation among 36 Atlantic regions in five European countries. The AYCH aims to develop new approaches and interventions within existing youth settings, as well as in both formal and non-formal education settings, to connect young people, creative and social business leaders, with experts in emerging and disruptive technologies and creative industries. This will take place across a network of “Atlantic Horizon Hubs” that will help them to develop ideas, new products and services.
