Programming & Community Partners
We foster several collectives that have had room to start from scratch and grow here, including Blue Summer and Kudzu who bring in local, regional, and international acts. We’ve been able to help these groups, because we ourselves received so much help in the beginning. Some local musicians, artists, producers, and organizations significantly helped build us from the ground-up.
Here are some of our current programming and community partners:
