Processing Foundation is pleased to announce Processing Community Day (PCD), a day to celebrate art, code, and diversity, held in Los Angeles and communities worldwide.
PCD @ Los Angeles is currently seeking submissions of speakers and workshops on the topics of Accessibility; Disability and Care; Radical Pedagogy; Under The Silicon, The Beach!; and Epic Play, with a deadline of August 30. PCD @ Los Angeles will be held on January 19, 2019 at UCLA Broad Art Center.
Beyond the Los Angeles event, Processing Foundation is also calling for organizers from communities around the world to organize a Processing Community Day in their own city. Node organizers will help define the Processing Community at large by creating programming for their local community. More than thirty cities have signed up to participate in Processing @ Worldwide.
Processing is a free and open-source software platform for code within the context of the visual arts, created by Casey Reas and Ben Fry. It is complemented by a web version, called p5.js, created by Lauren McCarthy. To date, Processing and p5.js are used by a worldwide community of artists, coders, educators, and students.
