Outpost Productions has been a non-profit arts organization since 1988. Since 1990, we’ve made our home at the Outpost Performance Space, a unique and intimate, non-smoking, non-alcohol, storefront alternative performance venue.
Where We Are:
In the spring of 2000, The Space moved to 210 Yale SE just two blocks south of Central in the heart of the University District. An elegant, nonprofit, no-nonsense, community-based, performing arts center.
What We Do:
We present a wide variety of music and more – over 100 shows a year plus Classes and Educational Programs – all kinds of jazz (bop to modern to avant-garde and everything in between); folk, blues & roots music; experimental music; classical music; international music; kids’ programs; poetry & spoken word; theater and performance art; puppets; visual art exhibits; and many other unique events.We’re proud to present and support the work of local as well as touring artists – recognized as well as emerging artists.
How We Do It:
Outpost Productions is a member-supported organization, also funded by grants (government & foundation), by donations, by corporate sponsorships, by advertising, as well as by ticket sales. IT’S A TEAM EFFORT!
Why We Do It:
We do it because we love it. And because we believe that performers and audiences deserve a place to meet and experience each other, up close, in a casual, but mutually respectful environment.
