Creative Space for BIPOC
Throughout the year we make our space available to all non-profits for little to no cost. However we recognize an even greater need now to hold space especially for the BIPOC community, regardless of non-profit status. This community has been engaged in the physical and emotional labor of fighting for justice, and if our space is of use in any way, we want to center those needs.
Seattle Rep is offering free use of our space through July for any one who identifies as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color. There are no project requirements – the space can be used for solitary activities of creation or healing, or small gatherings. While King County is currently in the early stages of reopening, we must limit gatherings to those in your household.
Spaces that are available:
- All lobby spaces
- The Spirits Lounge
- The PONCHO Forum
Please note that we cannot offer access to the lighting and sound booth in the PONCHO Forum, but there are preset lights and the ability to play sound from a personal device.
We will coordinate with you to meet your needs for the space while following CDC and local health & safety guidelines. A staff member will be onsite and we will do our best to accommodate all requests. Limited free parking is available in our staff parking lot.
To request access to the space, contact Nabra Nelson outlining the details of your use. Please submit your request at least two business days in advance of your desired date.
