Welcome to Ratio Club!

Ratio Club was a free ten-week workshop program exploring computation as creative practice. Participants took part in a series of sessions blending practical tutorials with critical discussions.

The workshops were structured to introduce novice coders to basic programming concepts, algorithmic approaches to digital design and modelling, and strategies for employing these in artistic practice.

The sessions were targeted towards creative practitioners who have limited prior coding experience, but who may have a broad array of other technical skills and experience.
