Processing Community Day NYC

2019 - 2020

Processing Community Day is a non-profit, community conference, consisting of activists, artists, designers, teachers, programmers and students. Processing Community Day is a day to celebrate art, code, and diversity. A focus of this project is to make learning how to program and make creative work with code accessible to diverse communities, especially those who might not otherwise have access to these tools and resources. We were the largest of dozens of locations around the world holding a local Processing Community Day event in 2019 and 2020.


Processing Community Day NYC is a volunteer-organized event. PCD NYC organizers were Lee Tusman, Matilda Wysocki, rebecca (marks) leopold, Rushali Paratey, Saber Khan, Todd Anderson and Bomani McClendon. Additional support from Amy Cheng, Cassie Tarakajian, Joey Lee, Joe McKay and Jeffrey Thompson. Processing Community Day NYC is an independent all volunteer-organized event in cooperation with the Processing Foundation and hundreds of other locally-organized nodes around the world. PCD NYC is supported by the Department of Education Computer Science for All (CS4All). The New School provided hosting support, with additional funding from Code + Liberal Arts at Eugene Lang. Thanks to Purchase College for the support of a Student Engagement Award. Dozens of speakers, workshop leaders and volunteers participated. The event could not have been a success without everyone's support.
