Open Call

In order to expand the scope of this community, this year we will invite a large number of our conference guests through an open call. We welcome artists, programmers, activists, educators, hobbyists from all cultural, educational, and professional backgrounds to submit a proposal for a lightning talk or a session related to one of our themed-tracks this year.

LA-based applicants who work to empower trans, gender non-conforming, disabled, neuro-atypical, P.O.C., or any other underserved communities are especially encouraged to apply. We are looking for applicants who can address art, code, and / or this year’s themes in radical and empowering ways; you are more than welcome but not required to discuss or use Processing / p5.js in your presentation.

Give a Lightning Talk

We are looking for lightning talk proposals that bring refreshing ideas and engage the community by addressing a particular track. All lightning talks will be live-streamed over the Internet and documented for the Processing Foundation archive.

Organize a Session

Each session should address a specific track and run for 45 minutes, and you are in charge of the session format — it can be a workshop, a forum, a group project, a mini-hackathon etc. A session can fill up to 35 people. Please make a note in your application if your proposed session has a limit of attendees.
