Innovative energy. Supportive community. Flexible, accessible spaces.

These are the pith and marrow of the Columbus performance scene.


“Art Makes Columbus…”

Although Columbus boasts several historic, large-scale spaces that seat thousands, the city presently lacks enough “storefront” or “black box” spaces that foster experiment, nurture outsider voices, and warmly convene smaller audiences. We feel that these are the venues that the Columbus performing arts community desperately needs. This project, supported by The Ohio State University, connects Columbus theatre and performance companies to raise awareness of this problem and present a collaborative season of local works.
