The Creative Code Stammtisch is a monthly open conversation between artists, makers, designers, coders, performers, learners and anyone interested in the use of computing skills for artistic expression. There is usually a time for people to present something if they want to, followed by informal discussions.
Wether you consider yourself to be a beginner or an expert, a theorist or a practising artist/technologist, we invite you to join us on Friday, ask questions if you want, contribute with your comments and maybe show a project you're working on.
If you're just getting started, the following video gives a rather comprehensive overview of what creative coding can look like: http://video.pbs.org/video/2322911761/
Note that you don't need to be a coder yourself! We are all about the intersection of disciplines so let us repeat this: this event is NOT just for coders! If you dig media art, you will enjoy yourself, and maybe even learn something! I'm not gonna lie: there might be code on the screen at some point, but we try to keep technical explanations reasonably short :)

A NOTE ON DIVERSITY
As members of Open Tech School and as individuals, our team is committed to embracing diversity. We want everyone to feel welcome and supported. This is why we are specifically reaching out to female artists, designers, theorists, students and learners. We want you to know that this community belongs to YOU. We wish for a diversity of opinions to be represented and we will go out of our way to make the largest possible range of voices heard. This invitation extends, of course, to everyone who feels underrepresented at art & tech events.
SAFE SPACE POLICY
Our events are free and open to everyone, regardless of their gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, social situation and religion (or lack thereof). We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free creative space where everyone feels comfortable expressing themselves. We expect you to respect and contribute to this environment.
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 :)
