Open Call for Live Coding Projects

08.01.2021 |

»on-the-fly« is a project, committed to support the development of the European live coding practices. As part of the project, the call will award eight grants to develop artistic live coding projects.

Hangar (ES) is leading a new project in collaboration with ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (GER), Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory (SL) and Creative Coding Utrecht (NL) called "on-the-fly" aiming to support the European live coding scene.

Live coding is a performing art and a creative technique about writing and coding algorithms with a live audience. It expresses creative intentions and promotes research, digital creation and technical literacy.

The organizers are looking for eight projects to develope artistic productions that involve live coding within a residency. The residencies will be hosted by one of the project partners (see above) and will take between 15 days to one month, depending on the lenght of the project. The artists will get around 1500€ as an artist fee as well as the subsistence cost for the residency, production costs and travel costs. Researchers, artists, developers and members of collectives of all ages (over 18 years old) and nationalities working in the field of live coding can apply until 14 January 2021.

The project »on-the-fly« is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union

Hangar’s mission is to support the visual artists and creators during the different phases of their art production processes as well as to contribute to the best development of their projects. For doing so, Hangar facilitates them equipments, facilities, production assistance and a suitable context for experimentation and free knowledge transfer.
