PCD @ Los Angeles is an inclusive event that will bring together people of all ages to celebrate and explore art, code, and activism. The day-long event features four themed-tracks — Accessibility, Disability, and Care, Radical Pedagogy, Under the Silicon, the Beach!, and Epic Play!. Each themed track contains lightning talks and sessions presented by conference guests we invite through an open call.

In addition to a full day of programming, we want to make space for anyone to share ideas and projects with the community. We will set up Show & Tell Stations, a Processing Community Cafe, and a Community Open Mic Session for participants to sign-up on the day of the event. The program will wrap up with an after party consists of performances, food, and drinks.

When? January 19, 2019, 10 AM PST

Where? UCLA Broad Art Center, 240 Charles E. Young Dr N., Los Angeles, CA


Early bird tickets are available from September 1st - October 31st, 2018. Regular ticketing and PCD Scholarship application opens on November 1st, 2018. Sign up for our newsletter to receive a reminder.

Every conference pass includes access to all lightning talks, entries to two workshops, performances, and the after party. The package also includes a lunch box (vegetarian / vegan options available), all day coffee & snacks, and PCD / Processing / P5 combo stickers.

Children under 12 will gain free entries to PCD @ Los Angeles. Children's diet varies widely at different age, therefore we would like to ask you to either bring lunch boxes for your children on the day of the event, or order PCD @ Los Angeles' children's meals when purchasing your ticket.

Families, Childcare, and Play!

Our entire day of programming is open to all ages, however the Epic Play! track is specifically dedicated to children, teenagers, and adults to participate and collaborate. Teenagers and children are welcomed to present at the Show & Tell Stations, the Processing Community Cafe, and the Community Open Mic — sign-up sheets will be available on the day of the event.

All children under 12 years of age must be accomodated by a parent or a guardian throughout the conference.
