Ever wanted to make an interactive toy or game but not known how? In this workshop series starting July and ending in an exhibition of projects at the Digital Design Weekend as part of London Design Festival, we will teach you everything you need to get off the ground in the world of game design.
Video games are a wonderful way to convey ideas, tell stories, educate and create playful experiences. For this eight part free workshop series, we will use the internet as our playground by exploring p5js with support from Goldsmiths College and the Processing Foundation.
What You’ll Learn
Developed for creative people, we will assume no prior knowledge in programming or game design. By the end of the 6 workshops you’ll have used the p5js to create your own working prototype game which you will then be able to play.
Who Are Code Liberation?
Code Liberation catalyzes the creation of digital games and creative technologies by women, nonbinary, femme and girl-identifying people to diversify STEAM fields. Founded in 2013, we’ve reached around 2,500 women started a UK chapter in 2016.
These workshops are open to women, nonbinary, femme, and girl-identifying people from all walks of life.
We can provide all the kit you need including laptops and electronics, but if you would rather use your own computer then you are free to bring it in.
