WHAT IS SCOPE LAB?
Scope Lab is a workshop series focused on exploring code as a creative medium with which to understand and represent diverse perspectives. These studies are framed by the questions: “Whose perspectives are represented?”, “Who has access to the tools to learn and express themselves?”, and “How do we design tools and projects that are more inclusive?”. Each workshop will consist of hands-on programming exercises, a lecture and discussion, and projects developed collaboratively. We will be using a software platform called p5.js
WHO IS SCOPE LAB?
Scope lab workshops are free and open for all UCLA students. Workshops may be attended on a drop-in basis, but we do encourage students to come to the entire series. No prior coding knowledge is necessary, all levels of experience are welcomed and encouraged.
Scope Lab is led by Lauren McCarthy
