Super Happy Block Party: Venture Further was happy to play a part in bridging the worlds of software developers, artists, and the City of Palo Alto with the Super Happy Block Party Hackathon in March, 2012. The event was hosted by Innovation Endeavors, Talenthouse, and Institute for the Future, who opened their doors to the community in the spirit of innovation by creating the perfect environment for an interactive block party.
Hackers and makers had access to three "hackspaces" on the block through custom APIs accessible with live feeds in the streets. Artists, designers, and creatives from Silicon Valley joined hackers, software engineers, and makers in a multimedia mashup conversation. The street was transformed with fleets of colorful food trucks, parking spaces dedicated to local start-ups and businesses, and a Hack the Future tent focused on teaching kids how to code.
Partnering with our clients, we brought local government, business, and artists together in a venue accessible to the wider community--and had fun doing it! Super Happy Block Party is a perfect example of our ability to synchronize complex ideas and creatively highlight what makes each event special.
