What we're about

The Gray Area Creative Code Meetup is an extension of our Creative Code programming which features workshops, artist talks and exhibitions dedicated to artists/designers who work with code/technology as their medium. All events are not for profit and managed by our 501(c)3 organization.

We hope that this platform will encourage and nurture unforeseen collaborations between like-minded individuals. We encourage you to join us and meet others in the community who are using code, microcontrollers, and emerging media to stylize their artwork.

The group is managed by nonprofit art and technology center, Gray Area Foundation for the Arts: http://grayarea.org/

Gray Area Festival 2021 – Worlding Protocol

Online event

Gray Area Festival 2021 – Worlding Protocol
October 20-26, 2021 / Online
Talks | Exhibitions | Workshops
Attend: https://grayareafestival.io

Join us for our annual survey of culture through the lens of creative practice with artist presentations, conversations, workshops, and an exhibition — now freely accessible online around the world.

How do we negotiate the balance between our individual freedom and communal dependencies; and what practical reality can we build together?

🌐 Worlding: a mode of interdependent, interspecies, planetary perception

🌐 Protocol: computational infrastructures that organize our mediated experience

As we take stock from within a still uncontained global pandemic, it is clear that the entangled web of ecological, economic, and social crises we face demands planetary scale cooperation. Even with the promise of new technologies enabling real-time simulation, distributed financial systems, and geoengineering, exclusionary and extractive power structures persist — rendering purely technical solutions ineffective. Anything is possible, yet nothing seems to change.

For our 7th edition, Gray Area Festival presents Worlding Protocol — a survey of interdisciplinary creators drawing upon indigenous knowledge, transhumanist philosophies, regenerative ecologies, and autonomous organizations to imagine new relational ontologies beyond utopian and fatalist worldviews.
