Creative Code Jam
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! ūüôą 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: https://rubyberlin.github.io/code-of-conduct/ Please make sure you agree with its content. ACCESSIBILITY 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...

Worum es bei uns geht

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

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 ‚ÄúCreative Code Berlin‚ÄĚ 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 Rapha√ęl de Courville.
