Next Meetup

Creative Code Stammtisch at CO.UP
The Creative Code Stammtisch is an open conversation between artists, makers, designers, coders, performers, learners and anyone interested in the use of computing skills for artistic expression. The event is free and open to all, regardless of age, origin, gender or experience. Beginners and first-timers should feel especially welcome! You don't have to be a coder yourself 😃 WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT? There is a time for people to present something if they want to, followed by informal discussions. Every topic is fair game, from net art to computational design and interactive installations all the way to wearable electronics and generative literature... It's a whole evening packed with fun, inspiration and human connection. Join us on Friday and see for yourself, ask questions if you want, contribute with your comments and maybe show a project you're working on. We're looking forward to meet you all! Note that this event is NOT just for coders! If you like art and/or technology, you will certainly enjoy yourself, and perhaps even learn something! A NOTE ON DIVERSITY We do our best to create a welcoming environment for people of all genders, and this takes more than just words. Please help us keep our community diverse by thinking of a female friend who could enjoy this meetup, and inviting them to join... seriously, just stop reading and do it 🙈 This invitation extends, of course, to members of all groups that are usually underrepresented at art & tech events. SAFE SPACE POLICY We support the Berlin Code of Conduct: berlincodeofconduct.org (http://berlincodeofconduct.org/) Please read and make sure you agree with its content. IS THE PLACE WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE? Co.up rooms are located on the third and fifth floor, so we will happily provide assistance with the elevator to those who need it. Please let us know how we can make the space more accessible and your visit more comfortable! DO I NEED TO SPEAK GERMAN? We speak mostly English so international guests are more than welcome! Our team also speaks French, Italian, Spanish, Finnish and German...

What we're about

We are a diverse community of people interested in the use of computing skills for artistic expression. Whether you are a seasoned artist or a hobbyist, a Processing wizard or a beginner, a long time fan or just curious, this group is for you!

Our mission is to spread knowledge about computational art, build bridges with other disciplines, support each other's projects and, maybe, inspire you to start your own... :)

MINDSET
Our meetups are free and open to all, regardless of age, origin, gender or experience. They are an opportunity to meet likeminded people, share inspiration and get creative together in a relaxed and safe environment. Beginners and first-timers should feel especially welcome!

WHAT IS CREATIVE CODING?
Artists have used computer code to create everything from surreal landscapes (https://vimeo.com/143076578) and machines that sing love songs (https://vimeo.com/133428328) to 3D printed clothes (https://vimeo.com/113504527) and jarring critiques of our society (https://vimeo.com/131357384).

Not so long ago, pioneers like Lillian Schwartz (https://vimeo.com/98960229) or Vera Molnar (https://youtu.be/kilg2TEmWh0) had to learn obscure languages to talk to the machine. Today, languages and tools like Processing (https://processing.org/), OpenFrameworks (http://openframeworks.cc/) or VVVV (https://vvvv.org) are specifically designed for artists. Some basic skills can even be learned in an hour (http://hello.processing.org/). Conferences (http://retune.de/) and festivals (http://fiberfestival.nl) all over the world (http://resonate.io/), as well as specialized websites (http://www.creativeapplications.net/) showcase the vibrant scene of creative technology.

In case you want a quick overview, this short video from PBS (https://youtu.be/eBV14-3LT-g) is a splendid introduction.

HISTORY
Our group began in 2012 as a Processing meetup, under the umbrella of OpenTechSchool (http://www.opentechschool.org/). It was renamed “Creative Code Berlin” in 2013. In 2016, we opened our own meetup group to make it easier for us to organize events and for the community to follow them.

TEAM
Creative Code Berlin is organized by Abe Pazos, Rachel Uwa, Ramin Soleymani and Raphaël de Courville.
