RAW (resident artist workshop)

What is RAW? 

Over the course of approximately 4-12 weeks, SAFEhouse provides artists with the following:

  • 3-6 hours of rehearsal space per week 
  • Choreography feedback session  
  • Publicity and technical support 
  • The opportunity to present for 1-2 nights at our 145 Eddy St venue

In exchange for these services, artists are encouraged to pay a voluntary $25 registration fee AND/OR  volunteer at SAFEhouse.  The registration fee is not meant to cause any hardship, if you are unable to pay the registration fee, please email joe@safehousearts.org to make other arrangements. As for volunteering, this is meant to be an opportunity for artists to take ownership of the organization and to learn the production side of a performing arts organization by being responsible for day-to-day operations.  

Artists can volunteer for any of the following tasks:

  • House managing for a show(s) 
  • Cleaning the studio before or after their rehearsal time 
  • Writing the program for a show 
  • Working on a special project 

SAFEhouse became an artist co-op on July 1st, 2021!

The SAFEhouse Artist Cooperative is a group of Bay Area artists that provide a safe place for local artists to make new work that is sustainable and equitable. The co-op believes in equity, diversity and inclusion and supports the voices of Bay Area QT&POC artists. The purpose of the cooperative is to create a sustainable business model that has more diversified leadership.

Information on membership and bylaws coming soon!
