What is Hacktistic?

The Sydney Autism Community Lions Club are proud to announce the Hacktistic Hackathon, which is being run to encourage people to learn about the challenges faced by Autistic people, and to empower people on the Autism Spectrum to design and formulate solutions to their problems.

You will have one week to come up with a solution for a chance to win cash prizes from a pool of $3,000. Autistic and other neurodivergent individuals are encouraged to register and compete!

Whilst we expect interest from technically-minded individuals, Hacktistic is different from most other hackathons, in that we seek talent and solutions from further afield, outside of the traditional Information Technology sphere. We want people of all kinds to compete!

Why Should You Participate?

  • You will have opportunities during Hacktistic to meet new people, network with mentors, build new skills… and maybe even help create new and better realities!
  • You have one week to create a solution! We want to create a hackathon experience that’s accessible in ways that a traditional weekend-long hackathon with its pressure-cooker, no-sleep, all-nighter mode of participation simply does not allow.
  • One hundred percent of all money raised by Lions Clubs worldwide eventually gets reinvested back into the community.
