Art and Technology Engagement

We believe we can all creatively shape science and technology.

CodeCreate Art and Technology Engagement transforms learners’ perspectives.

CodeCreate engages learners through personal design experiences with fundamental materials, integrating technology, art and other forms of diversity. Through workshops for youth and educators, exhibitions, commissions and cultural exchanges, CodeCreate shapes creative opportunities for audiences and participants to imagine, reflect, play and innovate.

CodeCreate believes integration is the key to both critical thinking and wellbeing. Integration must be between both demographics as well as attitudes.

CodeCreate coaches audiences to become designers.
