Kyle McDonald is an artist working with code. He builds tools that allow artists to use new algorithms in creative ways, and has a habit of sharing ideas and projects in public before they’re completed.
Featuring hands-on educational workshops, visiting artist lectures, and participatory lightning talks, Processing Community Day @ Pittsburgh (#PCDPGH) is a free, inclusive event to celebrate and explore creative coding in the arts.
This event supports the mission of the Processing Foundation: to promote software literacy within the visual arts, and visual literacy within technology-related fields — and to make these fields accessible to diverse communities. Our goal is to empower people of all interests and backgrounds to learn how to program and make creative work with code, especially those who might not otherwise have access to these tools and resources.
PCDPGH is organized by the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Studio Arts, with additional support from the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University. Our event is affiliated with Processing Community Day @ Worldwide, a series of events taking place in more than 100 cities around the globe.
