Connecting, Creating, and Celebrating are the pillars of CODAME #CodeArtTogether workshops:
- Connecting the community, learning from each other, and connecting new pathways in our brains.
- Creating tangible outcomes in the timeframe of the workshops.
- Celebrating artwork by sharing creations durring and after the workshops. It's thrilling to see students showing work at our ART+TECH Festival and shop.
Workshops are great for team building. They cultivate space to play, which guides sense-making and sparks innovation. In our workshops attendees become featured artists with the option to show their workshop creations in CODAME galleries.
Adapting CODAME signature workshops for cyber school has been a fruitful exercise. More and more we realize ways that online education aligns with our goals and values.
Internet-based tools means you can jump right into creative results. There’s no slogging through environment setup. Editors like glitch.com make it easy to collaborate and even ping the community for help. It’s a short step to sharing your outcomes when many online tools publish linkable results as you go.
Isolation has brought us closer to our international community of creators. The imagineers running CODAME workshops are world leaders in their fields. Likewise, attendees from all corners of the globe can enjoy CODAME workshops, which were previously a treat only for those in the Bay Area.
Our definition of “Code Art” is broad. “Code” lends many facets of it’s meaning:
- Systematically baking art into every day life and offices.
- Exposing subconscious meaning behind symbols and identifying signals where others see noise.
- And yes, even the obvious programmatic instructions for computers and conceptual art instructions for people 😉
Experiments and iteration are how we do at CODAME and #CodeArtTogether will be no different! We’re excited to hear what you think of the format. What other online experiences you’ve loved or hated? What topics grab your curiosity to learn or teach? Let us know through our call for workshops.
