In light of current worldwide developments, we've gone ahead and commenced a totally new segment we call our "10 Minute Livecoding Challenge"! During this weekly (every Tuesday at 20:00 CEST) bit, artists from the Netherlands Coding Live and Creative Coding Utrecht community presented 10-minute live coding performances.
We've challenged coders all over the country to create something from scratch in 10 minutes. During their live performance, the artists are expose the tools and practices they're using for coding music and/or visuals. In addition to their live performance, we are interviewing all artist in-depth, discussing their practice, tools, work in the community and coping with the radical and drastic changes in their practice due to the COVID-19 crisis. You can find an overview of all "Behind The Screens" interviews here.

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.
