The Casual Creators Workshop (CasCre) aims to foster experimentation and build community around the topic of casual creators: a recently-defined genre of creativity support tools that are specifically designed to support autotelic creativity, or creativity for its own sake. We also hope to promote discussion of the creative practices that emerge around casual creators, which are often casual, unskilled, ephemeral, and social.

⚠️ CasCre 2022 has been cancelled due to COVID. We plan to reconvene the workshop in 2023. Prospective participants who were already planning to attend C&C 2022 may want to attend the Augmenting Personal Creativity with Artificial Intelligence workshop instead.

Paper submissions for CasCre 2022 are due on May 2, 2022. The workshop will take place in Venice, Italy, as part of the ACM Conference on Creativity and Cognition, on June 20, 2022.


We're interested in a wide variety of topics related to casual creators and casual creativity. Here's some things we'd love to see represented within the workshop:


The Casual Creators Workshop accepts three kinds of submissions:

Submissions should be made via EasyChair. Papers must be submitted as PDF documents, formatted according to the two-column version of the CEUR-ART style. Papers must also be anonymized for double-blind review. Accepted papers will be published as part of a proceedings volume with CEUR-WS.

Papers of any kind may optionally be accompanied by an interactive demo. Demos will be displayed as part of a casual demo session during the workshop.
