Creatica is New York City’s virtual hackathon for women and non-binary individuals in high school and college from around the world. Founded on a mission to increase gender diversity within tech spaces, Creatica is a 2-day event that will equip students with the real technical skills and support network to hack together a project. As technological innovation shapes our future, we believe that it is imperative to get more diversity into tech spaces, and we see hackathons as a tool to do so. ‍

Students with all levels of coding experience are encouraged to join us and discover their potential as problem-solvers and tech leaders. This year Creatica will follow an Artificial Intelligence theme. Look forward to a weekend full of technical workshops, tech talks, mentorship, networking, and more! ‍
