p5.js 2021 Showcase: The Love Ethic


Hello everyone, we are so excited to be bringing back the p5.js showcase for the summer of 2021! The third iteration of this showcase is entitled “The Love Ethic”. As always, the purpose of the showcase is to show how creative coding is for everyone and that it is an inclusive space where everyone’s voice can be represented and heard, but in addition to that, this year’s showcase has a particular focus on the softness of the programming language and p5.js’ ability to be a radical community with values rooted in social justice and accessibility. Work from all ages and skill levels is encouraged!

With that in mind, for this year’s showcase, we are specifically looking:

🌸 To highlight and uplift contributions by our BIPOC community members.

🌸 For p5.js projects that are social justice-oriented, whether that be highlighting structural inequalities in society, finding ways to make society more equitable, or even emphasizing the importance of self-care (“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence. It is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”– Audre Lorde)

🌸 For everyone to get innovative, thoughtful, and excited to show us what you create because we are excited to see!

The Love Ethic is a 2021 Google Summer of Code selected project by the very rad Katie Chan (USC 2022) — Ashley Kang, Sam Vassor, and myself at the GSOC Mentors for this project!
