Processing Foundation Fellowship to support Innovative Projects

The Processing Foundation is thrilled to announce an open call for the 2024 Fellowship Program, themed ‘Sustaining Community: Expansion & Access’ to support innovative projects from artists, designers, activists, educators, engineers, researchers, coders, collectives, and many more, who are working at the intersection of creative technology, art, and open-source software.

Fellowships are an essential element of their foundation’s work in developing tools of community power, connection, stewardship and in nurturing the aims/needs of the people and communities who use their software. Projects can range from development of the existing software projects and related Processing projects (Processing, p5.js,, Processing for Android, ml5.js), to creative and exploratory work for new iterations.

They are open to applicants from all backgrounds and skill levels, and support proposals that center investigations, experiments, and learning. They are attentive to proposals that demonstrate enthusiasm and the evolution of a fellow’s practice rather than their pre-existing technical skills.
