Creative Meetup is a Belgian event gathering visual artists, videographers, designers, musicians, architects, programmers and researchers using creative coding tools.
Creative Meetup considers itself an inclusive, purpose-based initiative dedicated to the exploration of tools and methodologies across a heterogeneous set of practitioners.
By proposing an evening format in which short public presentations and informal encounters happen in a friendly atmosphere, Creative Meetup aims at opening up a safe space for exchange.
