The Processing Foundation Fellowships support artists, coders, and collectives in visionary projects that conceive a new direction for what Processing as a software and a community can do. Fellowships are an integral part of the Processing Foundation’s work toward developing tools of empowerment and access at the convergence of art and technology. Fellowships emphasize projects that expand Processing and its affiliated projects, as well as the evolution of a Fellow’s practice. Work done by Fellows is supported through funding and mentorship from The Processing Foundation. Scroll to the bottom of the page for all past Fellows.

At the Processing Foundation Medium, you can read a series of articles on the Fellows, in their own words. More information about the origins and development of the Fellowship program can be found here.

About us

Processing Foundation’s mission is to promote software literacy within the visual arts, and visual literacy within technology-related fields — and to make these fields accessible to diverse communities.

Processing Foundation is committed to diversity in its programming and in nurturing a community culture and environment that is reflective of the diversity of the US as well as the global community networks we operate within. We aspire to create a climate where diversity is an asset for creativity and innovation. We strongly encourage applicants representing a range of differences that include — but are not limited to — age, national origin, ethnicity, race, religion, ability, sexual orientation, gender and sexual identity. Processing will consider all qualified applicants with criminal histories in a manner consistent with the requirements of the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance and New York City Fair Chance Act.
