This is pre release and intermedia webpage of The NODE Institute with the aim to provide a home for the visual programming communities.

We work closely together with the Frankfurt based  NODE Forum for Digital Arts and provide continuous learning opportunities between their festival editions.

We are dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and inspiration. We organise workshops and webinars and host user meetings for the vvvv, TouchDesigner, Notch  and other creative communities in our studio in Berlin and worldwide through online participation of the same.

We connect educators with students, clients with experts, problems with solutions.

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.
