Sustain a climate of risk-taking in Seattle dance and performance communities

Be a Base Backer!

We started Base in 2016 to answer a need for outstanding, accessible creative space in Seattle. At that time, we were just beginning to feel the effects of the city's rapid development. Today, the unintended consequences of Seattle's breakneck growth are a well-documented, endlessly talked-about stressor across the arts community and well beyond.

We're grateful we were able to get ahead of the crisis and create Base. Now, with the help of a growing, engaged community, we're on track toward a sustainable future that includes even more of what we do best—make space for artists.

Be a Base Backer and help us share our extraordinary space with more artists through an expanded Base Residency Program. Be part of the momentum of 12 Minutes Max and the Base Occasional and watch new work keep emerging against the odds. Tell Seattle artists you've got their back by helping preserve our low rehearsal and performance rental rates.

Thank you gifts include Base merchandise, free tickets to 12 Minutes Max and more—get details here.
