CC Fest — Creative Coding Festival
CC Fests are free and inclusive events for students, teachers, and community members to engage in creative coding. Participants are encouraged to spend a day making interactive and engaging digital art, animation, and games. Teachers work on coding projects that they then can bring to their classes. Students are introduced to projects that help build their creative portfolios.
CC Fest is organized by a volunteer group of educators and led by Saber Khan, Education Community Director at Processing Foundation. Read about the first CC Fest at NYU ITP in October 2016 at this link.
These day-long events feature accessible sessions on creative coding led by volunteer educators and keynotes from inspiring individuals. You can learn more about some of sessions offered at these events at the link here and learn more about the volunteer organizers at the link here.
