The TouchDesigner workshop program, co-sponsored by MUTEK.JP and Derivative, is an activity to support the next generation of artists and will be held in partnership with Civic Creative Base Tokyo [CCBT], a hub where the public can explore their creative imagination in society through the use of digital technology.

TouchDesigner is a visual programming platform designed for all manner of interactive experiences. Its roots were founded in real-time visuals for live performance and today it continues that role for artists in the genre. This year's workshop will take place at CCBT to introduce and educate new and experienced creators to the technology through practical examples.

To better serve the community, this year we will hold 2 separate 1-day workshops.

Please choose only 1 of the workshops to attend.
Workshops will be in English and Japanese, translated for both.
