      Abstract

      Computing is the dominant media of our times and a cultural artifact; generative art is a subject to make art and technology relevant to young people’s experiences and bring art and the Stem subjects closer together as a value proposition for Steam. Generative art promotes the value of creativity, the creative industries and smart manufacturing within education to art, design and the core science subjects. It can also address the gender gap in Stem. It makes the scientific become the organic and can be used for young people to express themselves, socially, politically and economically. Whilst there is a declining uptake in GCSE art and design, arguably being not supported by the incoming EBacc curriculum, computer science forms part of the core science subjects. Policy makers are insistent that every child learns to code, but code what? 14–17 year olds, dubbed by the media in the UK as the “Gen Z’s” view learning computer science as boring, for the geeks and male dominated. Generative art is a fun and approachable way of teaching programming and fits the curriculum as an extension of existing units of enquiry.
