#procjam is a jam about making stuff that makes other stuff - come and join in this November with a relaxed, friendly jam, free tutorials and art packs to help you get started, and a great community! Find out more at www.procjam.com.
#procjam just has one rule: Make Something That Makes Something. That means we experiment with generative techniques, from rolling dice and picking things from lists, to using the latest ideas in technology to make complex and weird things. But you can enter anything into #procjam! You could make an art piece, a toy, a tool, an experimental prototype, a full videogame (or boardgame!), a meditation aid - anything you can think of!
Whatever you make, let us know what you're up to! Tweet with the hashtag #procjam and don't forget to submit your work to the jam using this page when you're done. Find us on Twitter and our official website!
PROCJAM is designed to help everyone take part. Here are some things you need to know:
Every year we release free art packs to help people make beautiful things. Our 2017 art packs - by @cryoclaire242 and @devilsgarage - are coming soon (more news in September)! In the meantime, check out our previous art packs too!
Brand new for 2017, we're funding four tutorials about generative software, covering topics like music, literature, and cool new techniques like wave form collapse and answer set programming. Stay tuned for more news on this - coming in September, hopefully! These tutorials will also be translated into Spanish, thanks to our kind Kickstarter backers, with more languages possibly coming soon after.
Our 2017 speakers have been announced! Every year we have talks from people in and around the generative community. This year we're not having a live talks day, but we are putting a huge bunch of great talks on YouTube at the start of the jam. We'll also be trying to stream them during the jam so people can watch and chat together! Read more about this year's speakers here, or check out our previous years' talks on YouTube?
Seeds is the official zine of #procjam! Last year we published over 100 pages of art and writing from community members, and this year we've had loads of submissions ready to go into Issue 2. We'll be releasing it close to the jam! Read Issue 1 here.
