Come celebrate the 1.0 release of p5.js!

p5.js is going through some massive shifts, ebbs + flows. We are riding the wave, building community, rethinking leadership models, dabbling in direct democracy, and publishing a new zine designed by Stefanie Tam.

This event will foreground celebration and solidification for the expanded LA community of artists, coders, educators, open-source devotees, and subversive software dreamers.



p5.js is a free and open-source JavaScript library for creative coding, with a focus on making coding accessible and inclusive for artists, designers, educators, beginners, and anyone else!

p5.js is part of the work done by the Processing Foundation. The mission of the Processing Foundation is to promote software literacy within the visual arts, and visual literacy within technology-related fields — and to make these fields accessible to diverse communities. The Processing Foundation seeks to empower people of all interests and backgrounds to learn how to program and make creative work with code, especially those who might not otherwise have access to these tools and resources.


This event will take place at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. It is made possible through the generous contributions of USC MA+P. The mission of MA+P is to empower people in the interpretation and design of media to be more engaged, active and critical citizens for the 21st century.


The venue for the event is wheelchair-accessible. Feel free to contact us with any specific accessibility-related questions.


This event will not provide free parking. Paid parking is on a space-available basis at the on-campus Figueroa Street parking structure, or guests may find street parking north of Jefferson Boulevard in between Hoover Street and Vermont Avenue.
