Code+Libraries

Libraries have a tremendous amount to offer to artists and coders. Their collections hold a myriad of materials that can provide inspiration and substrate for creative work. They also provide a bridge to the larger community, acting as both a local and a virtual hub for artists to connect to people.

Likewise the creative community can contribute greatly to the success of Libraries, by engaging with their holdings, by activating their community spaces, and by collaborating with librarians and other library staff.

Code+Libraries is a day-long open summit in which participants will explore ways that Libraries and the creative coding community can work together to create new forms of collaboration, to empower learners and to strengthen communities.

We very pleased to have the Team from THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS LABS coming in from D.C. to co-host this summit. Don’t miss it!

The Format


Structured as an ‘un-conference’, Code+Libraries provides a forum for every attendee to lead discussions, present work, teach workshops and devise new models for effective communication. This mini-conference will follow a ‘wiki’ format, meaning that the schedule for the event will be constructed and edited by the attendees themselves, based on their shared enthusiasms and interests.

Who Should Attend?

Code+Libraries is open to coders & non-coders, technologists, librarians, archivists, activists and would-be-activists, organizers and those looking to be organized. We’re committed to assembling a diverse set of voices and skill sets, and to providing a safe space for conversation.
