The Creative Code Jam is a monthly gathering of artists, makers, designers, illustrators, coders, musicians, 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. The jam is an opportunity to meet likeminded people and get creative together in a relaxed and safe environment. Beginners and first-timers should feel especially welcome!
SO WHAT'S GOING ON EXACTLY?
Participants are encouraged to team up and produce new work together. Our focus is on collaboration between disciplines, spontaneity and experimentation.
We sometimes propose exercises that foster creativity, collaboration as well as an exchange of skills between attendees.
The format is open and we like to keep it experimental so if you want to suggest an activity, please let us know! If it fits, we will make it happen :)
A NOTE ON DIVERSITY
Our best meetups have also been the most diverse. This is no coincidence. If each of us took the step to invite one female friend to join, everyone involved would benefit. We kindly ask you to pause for a minute and think who that friend could be... 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:
Please make sure you agree with its content.
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... Language availability may vary depending on which organizers are present :)
