#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.
Every year we have a live talks day with inspiring talks from artists, designers, engineers, sociologists and more! This year we have some new plans for talks - stay tuned for that! In the meantime, why not 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. Anyone can write for it - tell us about something you've made, your favourite generative trick, an idea you have or anything else you like! The zine is taking submissions up until mid-September for this year's issue - more info on the official site.
