ABOUT

Background

This is pre release and intermedia webpage of The NODE Institute with the mission to empower the visual programming communities. We felt the urge to provide a home for the visual programming communities all over the year. As our main event NODE Forum for Digital Arts happens only every 2nd or 3rd year, it became clear that we need a platform to extend the festivals massive workshop program throughout the year. The Institute works closely with its sister, the media art festival NODE Forum for Digital Arts

We are all about the exchange of knowledge and inspiration. We host regular user meetings for the vvvv, TouchDesigner, Noitch VFX and other creative communites in our studio in Berlin and worldwide over the internet.

We organise workshops and webinars and connect educators with students, clients with experts, problems with solutions. Learn more about our consulting services here!

The NODE Institute at Wipperstraße / Berlin

Let’s be honest. If you do what we do, you do it because you love it. And that’s what makes it so rewarding to meet likeminded people that dedicate their talents to explore the borderlands of art, technology, performance and programming. 

To enjoy each others company, to share inspiration, to come up with new projects, to help each other out and to chat about something completely different.

We enjoy facilitating these encounters, live in our studio in Berlin and worldwide.

Our mission is to complement the great wealth of user generated tutorials with an organised learning path suited for professionals.

As a platform we connect students and educators in a way that benefits both.

Educators can spend more time on creating learning materials and help students when they get paid. 

Students will be able to aquire certificates, backed up by industry professionals that actually mean something when looking for a job.

United we stand, divided we fall. 

We don’t believe in competition. We  believe that great talents will want to create great work together and make a living. That works better together than against each others. 

Call us hippies if you want, but we want to contribute to a world where people respect each others work and viewpoints and help each other to grow. Where people think critical about the state of the world, their work andour common future.
