Aftermovie - International Conference on Live Coding 2023

The ICLC aftermovie is out and it makes us all the more nostalgic. Visitors from near and far have brought to Utrecht an endless stream of inspiration, community and laughter.

Fabian van Sluijs, creative director of Creative Coding Utrecht, shares his reflections looking back on the experience: "Hosting the ICLC was a joyous end result of an international collaboration between CCU, toplap Barcelona and Karlsruhe and Ljudmila that started during the pandemic. We used our online organizational skills to create a magnificent IRL programme in Utrecht and beyond that was thoroughly enjoyed by all the participants. It was a great honor to host the international live coding community in Utrecht and to let them interface with our local cultural infrastructure and audiences."


Take a walk down memory lane with us thanks to Videohippies and Tanja Busking, who have perfectly encapsulated the atmosphere of joy and discovery that this event has been filled to the brim with.

Special thanks to Toplap Barcelona, Toplap Karlsruhe, Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory, nl_cl for assisting the organisation of the conference and events. To our partners, the City of Utrecht, Creative Industries fund NL, Nieuwe Instituut, the Goethe Institut and the European Union. The venues spread across the city deserve a special shoutout: VOGELFREI, Het Huis, EKKO, the former Pieter Baan Centrum and TivoliVredenburg have been the perfect home to the conference and post-conference times. Our volunteers have been absolutely instrumental to everything.

Last but not least, we would like to extend a special recognition to the contributors from all over the world, who made the conference possible and brought their enthusiasm to our city:
