TouchDesigner Roundtable XXII

25 Apr 2023 , 19:00 23:00 CEST

Organized by The NODE Institute, the TouchDesigner Roundtable Berlin is the meeting point for creatives and developers who work with the visual development platform TouchDesigner as well as everybody who is curious about the world of interactive media art and the people behind it.

The forthcoming edition promises to be exceptional in more ways than one, for it will be integrated into the TOUCHDESIGNER EVENT BERLIN 2023, a two-day community gathering hosted by Derivative in Europe. This marks Derivative’s first such event on the continent since Berlin 2018, and it has been eagerly anticipated.

The highlight of this event will be three full dome shows, presented by some of the brightest minds in our community, inside the dome of the Zeiss Planetarium.
While admission to the TD EVENT will require a ticket, the Roundtable will remain open to all, free of charge. However, we kindly request that you reserve your place at the bottom of this page.

To secure your spot in the Dome, please R.S.V.P – or get one of the new supporter tickets!
RSVP / Ticketing starts on Tuesday, the 28th of March, 10 AM
RSVP / Tickets are limited to 250 attendants.

We will not stream the talks this time, we might publish an edit though later.
