ABOUT SAFEhouse for the Performing Arts


SAFEhouse is a cooperative, community art space that hosts Residencies, Workshops, and Performances, and also has space available for Rentals. SAFEhouse for the Performing Arts is a 501(c)3 California non-profit and is operated by the resident artists and staff who are supported by the SAFEhouse Board of Directors.



Each SAFEhouse artist is a part of our Resident Artist Workshop (RAW), which is a co-op, and contributes toward running the organization. Many also participate in our Lead Artist program, which is a group of artists that work in tandem with the staff on marketing, development, operations and production. We have also recently re-launched AIRspace, our Queer & Trans Artists of Color Fellowship/Residency. 



SAFEhouse has moved around to several locations over the years and is has just opened their newest venue located at 145 Eddy St. 



Although SAFEhouse is only 10 years old, it has quite a colorful history with a strong mission and bright future. 



SAFEhouse is proud to have a staff entirely comprised of working artists and a strong board to support them. 



Find out whom to contact regarding each program. Although, we are a small staff and one of us will always make sure that your question gets to the right person. Maps to both of our locations also live on this page.
