Makers Meet & Eat 2021


10 tables, 4 rounds, 40 short talks by 20 makers, 1 inspiring keynote, 1 XXL vega BBQ, 100+ makers and like-minded people. These are the ingredients of the second Makers Meet & Eat organised by Creative Coding Utrecht, IMPAKT, RAUM, and SETUP on Sunday 11th of July from 12:00 - 20:00 at RAUM on Berlijnplein. During the Meet & Eat you will get around the table with various makers to get to know their ways-of-working and research in the field of digital art, culture and design. An afternoon for meeting, sharing knowledge, tricks of the trade and a look behind the scenes. The day will end with a BBQ hosted by Venster, at which we will chat whilst enjoying a good bite, drink and (hopefully) the sun.

Project: Utrechtse gevangenisregisters

Help jij mee met het invoeren van gegevens van mensen die in de Utrechtse strafgevangenis Wolvenplein of het huis van bewaring aan de Gansstraat hebben vastgezeten? Via het online crowdsourcingsplatform is het mogelijk ons en Het Utrechts Archief te helpen met het ontsluiten van een belangrijke bron: Utrechtse gevangenisregisters uit de jaren 1900-1920.


10 tafels, 4 rondes, 40 short talks van 20 makers, 1 inspirerende keynote, 1 XXL vega BBQ, 100+ makers en gelijkgestemden. Dit zijn de ingrediënten van de tweede Makers Meet & Eat die Creative Coding Utrecht, IMPAKT, RAUM en SETUP samen organiseren op zondag 11 juli van 12:00 - 20:00 uur bij RAUM op het Berlijnplein.  Tijdens de Meet & Eat schuif je bij uiteenlopende makers aan tafel om kennis te maken met hun werkwijze en onderzoek op het gebied van digitale kunst, cultuur en design. Een middag voor ontmoeting, kennisdelen, tricks of the trade en een kijkje in de keuken. Het programma sluit af met een barbecue gehost door Venster, waarbij onder genot van een goede hap, een biertje en (hopelijk) de zon wordt nagepraat.

CCU is a community founded in 2017 by Carolien Teunisse and Fabian van Sluijs with the goal to stimulate digital creativity and creative coding in Utrecht and beyond.

Through a variety of activities such as workshops, meetups, performances and exhibitions we bring together the community of makers (artists, designers, researchers, developers, performers, musicians) to share knowledge and collaboratively explore the artistic potential of self-made soft- and hardware for creating expressions.

In framing our activities we employ a postdigital perspective in which we make no distinction between 'old' and 'new' media and reflect on 'digital' creativity as part of a long tradition around arts and crafts. In this context Creative Coding Culture is interesting as it's thoroughly hybrid and composed of practices so diverse that its meaning is in flux. As such we research and reflect on what creative coding is and can be, in order to look for new and anti-disciplinary methodologies that can help shape our contemporary society in a fair and positive way.
