About the network

Creative computing is an interdisciplinary field at the intersection between computing and creative arts, such as sonic and visual arts. It refers to a meta-technology to blend knowledge in computing and other disciplines. Creative computing is also a tool for learning and discovery, which has recently gained popularity in both research and pedagogy.

Creative computing practitioners come from different backgrounds ranging from computer science and engineering to the arts and humanities. We recognize that at the University of Oslo (UiO) and in the Oslo region, there are several pockets of fragmented expertise scattered across departments and organizations, as well as a vibrant community of independent practitioners.

Purpose

In C2HO we aim to systematically map expertises, develop a cross-domain understanding, gather relevant resources, and build a network that fosters collaborations and cross-contaminations.

Furthermore, C2HO aims to deploy an e-infrastructure that facilitates knowledge-sharing and networking between researchers and other practitioners. Relevant resources will be consolidated in an online interactive portal developed during the project and maintained after its conclusion.

Financing
