By providing access to outstanding, flexible creative space, Base aims to enable artists to take chances with their projects and practices.

Base Artist Residency

Two to three multi-week Base Artist Residencies are given out to dance and performing artists each year. At this time, Base Artist Residencies are awarded by invitation. If you're interested in a Base Artist Residency, we invite you to get involved in the Base community—attend our events, rehearse in our space and let us get to know you and your work.

Base Subsidy Program

The Base Subsidy Program allows artists to rent up to 40 hours of space for rehearsal at just $8/hour. Base awards 10-15 subsidies each year, with a semi-annual open call. The next open call for the Base Subsidy Program will be issued in spring 2018.


Base offers internships on a rolling basis in areas of marketing, documentation/archiving, technical theater and 12 Minutes Max. We are currently accepting applications for the Base Marketing Intern. Email us if you have questions about interning at Base.
