Applications being taken for paid Pygame Artist in Residence #Python
MAKING APPS, MAKING WEBS writes that they are looking to fund a one month “Pygame artist in residence grant”. It is for someone who is already doing stuff with pygame or python in their arts practice. There will be a little thumbnail on the website linking towards an artist statement /patreon page/blog or some such. The residency won’t be in a physical space and is paid a stipend.
An artist residency usually works something like; a person spends some time in either a gallery making something to present or in a music club doing a weekly spot.
From Ada Lovelace the writer(and first programmer), to Steve Jobs who started out at Atari, to Bill gates the author of the first ever PC game, to Konrad Zuse the painter (who happened to also make the first digital computer) — the arts and computers are intertwined.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
