So What is this Place?
For the Guest
Come with friends and share unique moments as this storefront exhibition space transforms from one atmosphere into another, cycling projects throughout the year. We aim to provide the community with access to a roster of fun and intriguing spatial and sensory experiences in the realms of gaming, art, entertainment, and learning. In addition, we work with creators and affiliated organizations to explore technology, innovation, and connect local networks through events, product demos, educational workshops, and talks by forward-thinking people.
For the Creator
We work with creators to develop mutually beneficial opportunities to make and present unique experiences for the public. One of the challenges with creating immersive experiences and developing technology-based projects is the separation between studio and exhibition space. We provide a space for creators to develop, playtest, and exhibit all in the same environment. Depending on your needs, we offer: working space, access to equipment and technical support, help with advertising and running events, playtesting demos, or talks, as well as coffee, tea, and a place to power-nap or let off steam during ‘the crunch.’
For the Event Organizer
Have an event in mind? Depending on the nature of your event, we offer our facilities, equipment, as well as assistance in planning, promotion, technical set up, and establishing the right vibe. We have have held game playtesting, jam / hack sessions, lectures, workshops, art exhibitions, musical / theatrical based performances, and we'd love to explore interesting new ideas with you! Our rates vary depending on the nature and requirements of the event so contact us with inquiries.
