Processing Community Day in London is Saturday, 26th January 2019 in the Creative Technology Lab at London College of Communication, Elephant & Castle. PCD @ London is a day to celebrate art, code, and diversity.

Processing is a free and open-source software platform for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts, created by Casey Reas and Ben Fry. It is complemented by a web version, called p5.js, created by Lauren McCarthy. To date, Processing and p5.js are used by a worldwide community of artists, coders, educators, students.

A focus of this project is to make learning how to program and make creative work with code accessible to diverse communities, especially those who might not otherwise have access to these tools and resources. The first Processing Community Day (PCD), organized by Taeyoon Choi and the Processing Foundation in 2017 was one of our efforts to improve diversity within the art and programming community. Taking place at the MIT Media Lab, PCD 2017 drew community members from all over the east coast to get together in person to meet, share what they're working on, to learn, and collaborate.

For PCD 2019, the Processing Foundation is broadening the reach and impact of this community by organizing with hundreds of Processing communities around the world. The London PCD is a proud part of this new network.
