After a very successful first year, the Creative Code Fellowships are back! We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Joseph Burg, Jill Hubley, Lindsay Irving, Andrew Kleindolph, Elaine Laguerta, Steve Pepple, and Carlo Urmy to our studio for the summer.

We’re also excited to be partnering with a wide range people this summer for these fellowships. Gray Area is providing space at the Grand Theater, as well as co-mentorship and a summer of creative coding classes. Britelite Immersive, Presence and Obscura Digital have offered financial support along with Stamen, and we have support through a variety of resource partners including the Exploratorium, UC Berkeley, Harvard, and SFMOMA.
