LPC logo


LPC is a not-for-profit creative space open to all who wish to broaden their skills and/or awareness of art and technology. Located in Oakland, we provide the space, tools, resources, and community to empower, inspire, challenge, and encourage creativity, innovative learning, and collaboration through technology, arts, and science.


WHAT WE DO HERE

LPC is unique in that we offer a large community warehouse space, well equipped with tools, space, and materials to offer. Our technologists, craftsmen, and artists offer participants the ideal environment to learn through classes, projects, mentoring, workshops, and idea-sharing social events. We’d love for you to become a part of our community, so don’t just show up–participate!
