Developed by Resident Artist Todd Anderson, HitchHiker is a chrome extension for creating live performances inside other people's internet browsers.  Using HitchHiker, you can lead a tour of a section of the internet you know better than anyone else, assemble a protest group to vandalize corporate home pages, interrogate our relationship to social media or online shopping on top of those very sites, create a collaborative interactive mystery or invent your own new style of performance that's never been seen before. 

In this 3-day workshop, Todd Anderson will teach participants how to build and guide performances in HitchHiker and how to build on the existing functionality for those with Javascript experience. The workshop will culminate in an invite-only night of performances for fellow participants, friends, and family who can attend live at CultureHub or remotely through their web browsers.
