Making brilliant creative space affordable to artists is crucial to maintaining a vital cultural landscape. As Seattle's rapid growth continues, it gets more challenging for dance and hybrid performing artists to create. The rising cost of living makes the need for alternative, experimental art space especially strong.
We keep our rental rates below market value to make it easier for artists to do their work. Every dollar we raise helps fund the difference between what we do for artists and what it costs to run Base.
Base appeared on the landscape to provide artists with a flexible, accessible space to create, practice and perform. With a mission to elevate risk and invention in dance, performance and multidisciplinary art, Base is part of a declaration that Seattle is still a great place to make art.
Base is 2,000 square feet of flexible space, with 20 foot high ceilings, natural light, a sprung floor, light and sound systems, a kitchen and a bathroom. Located in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood, Base is ideal for rehearsal and performance. More on what artists can do at Base here.
