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.

In the period spanning 2021- 2024, CCU aspires to strengthen its foundation and further embed it. In doing so, we are creating the conditions for the realization of our vision and mission. By strengthening our identity, safeguarding our unique working method and taking up our position in the cultural field, we offer a wider range of artistic with our activities, we offer a greater artistic and social added value. With a strong core team and growing own income, we will ensure the continuity of our activities and we are building a sustainable organisation.
