Red Bull Creation is a 72 hour innovation competition that gathers Makers, Hackers, and Inventors to create something new around a collaborative topic.
Each year presents a new, unique challenge and theme. In 2018, Red Bull Creation lands in the Bay Area with the goal of creating new connections and collaborations following the theme “Bridges Over Walls.”
Can building materials, artistic vision, sweat and perseverance overcome the literal and figurative obstacles that divide people?
The event brings together 10 teams of four local makers, some invited, others drawn from wild card entries, to build creations that facilitate meaningful interactions between strangers in public, with a topic of Bridges Over Walls.
So, who are makers? They are tinkerers, hobbyists, artists and technologists. Some are professionals, and others are enthusiastic amateurs. All are dedicated craftspeople who bring their visions to life, whether creating something new in their garage or erecting a city block-sized art installation.
Come see and celebrate what was created by this year’s teams. This afternoon street party includes interactive art installations, live DJ sets by Oakland favorites the B-Side Brujas, and Indy Nyles, as well as a special panel hosted by Gray Area Foundation for the Arts exploring the power of public art and technology to build community.
