About the Venue

CrashSpace is a hackerspace in Los Angeles, and is part of the growing global hackerspace movement. We are a collection of hackers, programmers, builders, makers, artists and people who generally like to break things and see what new things we can build with the pieces. We meet regularly at our physical location in Culver City.
Crash Space is generally open to members only, but we also do regularly scheduled classes and other events. Our Public Discussion List is open to anyone and we invite you to join and say Hi.  If you’d like to visit Crash Space we have an open house on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.
