About PCD23

The Processing Community Day 2023 (PCD23@Porto) is a free and open-participation event that aims to promote Creative Coding and Computational Thinking in the Arts and Design.

It will take place on Tuesday 14th of February 2023, and we welcome all local, national and international people interested in this topic to join us at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto.

Following the model from previous editions, this year's program will feature a keynote conference, an online exhibition (resulting from the call for works), and a set of beginner and intermediate-level warm-up workshops, on different creative coding topics and technologies, and a round table discussion about computation in education.

The PCD23 is a voluntary and open-to-participate organization of the Communication Design, Visual Arts and Drawing bachelor degrees designed for the entire creative community.

All events in the program are free, but registration is mandatory.
