HACK is able to support projects in our various designated project spaces or we can assist in the sourcing of new and unique spaces through local connections. A variety of interesting spaces are to be found in the area, from the beach fronts to abandoned buildings, roof spaces to back streets, empty stores, old signage, shop frontages and many more yet to be discovered locations.
Please get in touch to see how we can facilitate remote works.

PLACE AS INTERFACE :
The approach of "place as interface" reconsiders locations as conceptual topologies allowing for iterative and open experimentation. The idea attempts to juxtapose processes more typical to tech and creative development into real world geographies.
Using the ethos of open source development and collaboration, the preliminary event will act as both an introduction to the area and as a method to establish further ongoing strategy and partnerships.
We believe that sustainability and change in an area should adopt and train local people through education, participation and exposure, from small workshops and exhibitions through to ongoing long term projects and development.
Our role is to support projects, their integration and to assist with collaboration.
- long term goals
A key focus of HACK Morecambe is to support investigative projects that provide insight into scalable solutions or highlight social issues that can be both exported, transposed and resolved in multiple locations.
Equally, HACK proposes a testing ground to assist in the autonomy and shared ownership of creative projects.
