Vienna is ready. Are you?

15-17 April 2016


A good story can change the world, connecting people around a common purpose. For positive impact to happen the stories that matter need to be heard. The link between creative industries and social entrepreneurs have not been very strong so far. Together, we can change that!


What would happen when creatives and social entrepreneurs collaborate for 48 hours in an inspiring space?

Impact cannot happen in isolation.
It requires collective action.

Are you…


A designer, filmmaker, journalist, photographer, illustrator, programmer or blogger?

Join us.


Learn, collaborate and create powerful stories for social Impact. Get together with fellow creatives, storytellers, developers and entrepreneurs for one full weekend of creativity, new connections and experiences while discovering Vienna from a different perspective.



Do you want to see what a group of over 40 inspired creatives can achieve in the space of 48 hours? Do you want to learn what they learnt, see what they saw, experience what they experience and hear the stories they have created? Then come to the showcase event on Sunday 17th, 19:00.

We aim to…

Provide a platform for creative storytellers to apply their unique skills to issues that matter

Foster collaboration between Social Entrepreneurs and Creatives in Europe.

Raise awareness for the power of storytelling for social Impact. Make every story count!

Develop creative communication to help changemakers tell their stories in new and compelling ways.

It’s going to be awesome.


Who is this Hackathon for?
It is aimed at creative storytellers and social activists who believe in the power of storytelling to change our world in a positive way. It is for individuals who are passionate about meeting new collaborators, learning new skills and developing stories together. If this is you, apply here.


When and where?
We are meeting in Vienna from 15-17 April 2016


Is it free?
Included for free is 3 nights in a great hotel, All food (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) apart from one external dinner trip on the Saturday.

What about the stories?

Stories were handpicked by the Impact Hub Vienna team.


How long will we be working on powerful stories?
You will have between Friday evening until Sunday evening to come up with powerful stories. Due to the nature of the event (it is a Hackathon!) you will be faced with some time pressure!


Will I have time to explore the city?
Well, 1001 is a Hackathon. You might end up working the whole weekend! But if you get done early, we will have many fun activities for you!
