What happens when code meets art? And when art meets code?

Creative coding is a type of programming in which the goal is to create something expressive and critical instead of something purely functional. It is used to create live visuals, netart, installation, sound, wearables - anything our creativity can produce with algorithms

In this special event we aim to expand our understanding of technology, code and art, and inspire women and underrepresented people to use code in a creative way

It will take place at panke.gallery, an art gallery and club specialised in netart (yes, internet art!). We will finish the full day event with a collective live performance where everyone will be invited to use their own laptop as an instrument to create image and sound in real time

The works produced in this day will be exhibited for a month at the Zentrum für Netzkunst. How cool is that? ;)

Come & have fun with us!


About food
It's a full day event, we plan to have a collective picnic together. If you can, please bring some special food you enjoy sharing.
*if you cannot or don't want to bring food, you can buy vegan wraps at panke, but they must be reserved in advance :)

About accessibility
Panke is fully mobility accessible. It does have a club environment, it is a bit darker and chairs are basic. Please let us know in advance if you have any special needs or requirements and we will be happy to figure out something together. Please write an e-mail to us if this applies to you with subject: "Accessibility for Feb 29th" :)

Child care
Unfortunately we cannot provide childcare, but we will be happy to put participating parents in contact with each other so that you can organize a "rotation system" or whatever is convenient. Please write an e-mail to us if this applies to you with subject: "Child care for Feb 29th" :)
