The Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry is producing “LIVE! ART&&CODE” – weekend workshops and events that bring together media artists, performers, teachers working at the intersection of performance, real-time visuals, live coding and nightlife.


This public-serving and highly interdisciplinary series is dedicated to skill sharing and community building in and around Pittsburgh nightlife and live performance. Taking place at CMU’s Pittsburgh campus and local venues, the program will feature artist-led workshops, performances, panel discussions and participant-driven exhibitions.


Carnegie Mellon University’s Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry has been approved for a $25,000 Grant for Arts Projects award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to support ART&&CODE. The STUDIO’s project is among 1,130 projects across the country, totaling more than $31 million, that were selected during this second round of Grants for Arts Projects fiscal year 2023 funding.
