BYO laptop and/or anything you might want to play with on the day. Don't want to code? Just come see the exhibited works and showcase!



We're bringing artworks and games made in Processing/p5.js for the space. Come stare, come drool, come play. ✨

Code Jam

As the uniting glue, all participants are invited to take part in the Challenge. Participants will be briefed a task at the beginning of the day and all submissions will be created into our very own Aus/NZ zine! Let's make something! Suitable and welcoming to all abilities.


Nine curated, local practitioners (three from each location - Brisbane, Melbourne, Wellington) will present over live stream as we prepare to spend the day celebrating the love that is Processing. Check local events for times.

Open Call

- Do you live in Australia or New Zealand - or are you just passing through?

- Have you made some creative coding work recently that you want to share across land and seas?

Submit a link to the work when you reserve a ticket. Selected submissions will have a 3 minute slot to show and talk about their work. Submissions open to anyone who's ever made anything with Processing (all derivations welcome, i.e. p5.js, Python-mode Processing, Quil...)!

Want to get involved?

Hit us up on the PCD @ Aus/NZ Processing Discourse forum.


Should you have any special requirements and questions, please email the team at with the subject line "Brisbane".

We are proud and official Node Organisers of Processing Community Day @ Worldwide events.

A day to celebrate art, code, and diversity —

Processing is a free and open-source software platform for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts, created by Casey Reas and Ben Fry. It is complemented by a web version, called p5.js, created by Lauren McCarthy. To date, Processing and p5.js are used by a worldwide community of artists, coders, educators, students.

The first Processing Community Day (PCD), organized by Taeyoon Choi and the Processing Foundation in 2017 was one of our efforts to improve diversity within the art and programming community. Taking place at the MIT Media Lab, PCD 2017 drew community members from all over the east coast to get together in person to meet, share what they're working on, to learn, and collaborate.

For PCD 2019, we would like to broaden the reach and impact of this community by organizing with hundreds of Processing communities around the world.

Code of Conduct

We like welcoming spaces, and everyone who wants to attend deserves that. All participants, organisers and volunteers, are required to agree to the PCD Code of Conduct.
